VC and USCA reps’ marathon success

UCSA President Josh Proctor provides an account of fundraising efforts for the new UCSA building Haere-roa at the recent Queenstown Marathon.

The Queenstown Marathon was a fantastic event that those involved will remember for a long time.

Rod completed his twenty-first marathon and was accompanied by UCSA exec members Shayne Goldingham and Alex Holmes who were both completing their first.

Alex and Rod ended up passing each other a few times throughout the race, with Alex eventually finishing slightly in front.

Shayne chugged away and his halftime Facebook message stating he was on track to achieve a PB was accurate, and despite the pain, he was all smiles crossing the finish line.

 Sam Brosnahan and I were entered in the half marathon, Sam’s second and my first.

All in all, we had a lot of fun and are glad to have been able to run in support of Rod who raised over $11,000 for Haere-roa. The UCSA Fundraising campaign is etching closer to $3 million and we’re very excited to be opening our new home next year.
