On Friday, Susan Benedek, Gareth Juddery, Christine Fenby and Byran Theunisen, joined forces to form team Downtown Riser Racing Rotarians to compete in the annual Step Up Challenge - the race to the top of Sky Tower - as a fundraiser for Leukaemia & Blood Cancer New Zealand.
Our team competed against some of New Zealand's biggest corporates, as well as a few gyms and crossfit teams. After 53 flights and 1,103 stairs, the team successfully summited the largest structure in the Southern Hemisphere. Not only was it awesome to get out and take on this physcial challenge, but it was also a good chance to mingle with the 400 other participants, all keen on supporting a great cause.
Thanks Susan for organising this for us - and thanks team for a great effort all around.
