Koru Care Gala Dinner

16/04/2009

I had a fantastic time at the Koru Care Gala Dinner and Charity Auction last night. It was an experience to be surrounded by so many people who had so much money!! There was a lot of wealth in that room last night and a large portion of it was used to bid for items such as a helmet signed by Michael Schumacher and a Fender guitar signed by Paul Mcartney and Ringo Starr.

Congratulations to the organisers for raising $170,000 to send children with terminal illnesses and permanent disabilities on holidays around the world.

Thanks also to Gary Endacott for your inspirational speech. Gary was the first person with Cerebral Palsy, on the planet, to compete in the New York marathon and has since successfully returned to New York to run on a further 3 occasions. He has also held the New Zealand and World Disabled Tennis championship but one of his greatest achievements came in 2001 when Gary became the first physically disabled person to climb Mt Kilamanjaro.
