Big Brothers Big Sisters is being launched in Auckland with the help of BIG BOOTCAMP
The Auckland branch of Big Brothers Big Sisters of New Zealand is being given a major boost with the help of the Les Mills fourth annual charity bootcamp, which this year aims to raise $100,000 for the newly established Big Brothers Big Sisters of Auckland programme.
Minister for Social Development, Employment and Youth Affairs, Paula Bennett, comments, “I’ve had the privilege of seeing Big Brothers Big Sisters in action first hand and am fully supportive of bringing this much-needed charity to our country’s biggest city. I encourage all New Zealanders to get behind BIG BOOTCAMP to help make a difference for Kiwi kids.”
Reece Zondag, CEO of Les Mills, says, “Les Mills Charity Bootcamp has a proven track record of raising significant funds for its charity of chose. The people who participate have an amazing time, raise money for a good cause and get fit in the process.
We’re really exciting to have around 140 people participating this year including some well-known faces like Miriama Smith and Carol Hirschfield.”
BIG BOOTCAMP participants train three times a week, military-style with a twist, for four weeks in teams. Teams compete against each (and their own willpower) while raising money for Big Brothers Big Sisters through individual online fundraising pages.
BIG BOOTCAMP kicks off on 31 October and runs until 25 November 2011.
