100 Km Challenge



Monday 26th March 2018

Last year we achieved 146.5 kms even though our goal was 100! So this year let’s see how much we can beat that by!

Our objective is to walk, run or bike 1 or 2 laps of a short course which added together will be a significant distance. A challenge that we may struggle with individually, but together we may be able to exceed!!

Step Ahead members from West, Rangiora and Stanmore will have the opportunity to join in a fun activity, where we support each other to do what we can towards our overall goal of travelling the longest distance possible.

At Halswell Quarry a 1km and a ½ km loop will be marked out. Members will take turns at carrying a baton around either the short or the long course by walking, running or biking. Then pass one of the batons on to another member to carry, and so on.

Remember, this challenge will not be measured by the speed that you complete a lap in or the number of laps you do, but by the overall distance travelled by the whole group.

Up 4 it? Last year it was great fun!
Keep up the good work, consumer driven organisations are always empowering to clients.

I believe if people start attending from hospital, they are more likely to engage once living in the community. Keep keeping on!

Over the time as I see consumers grow and become more confident, I am amazed. The groups, activities and support given is well received by consumers, and family/whanau. You hold a valuable service, keep challenging.

Step Ahead has been very useful for our family member. It has given her strength and confidence to attempt things she would never have done in the past. She is meeting a lot of people with similar problems to her, and they can face new challenges together and help one another by talking about it.

Your service is excellent, keep up the good work. Being able to engage people into Step Ahead prior to discharge is very useful from our perspective, for the person, and focusses them on the community, not extending the inpatient stay.
