Raroa Intermediate Team YIP Johnsonville Community Walk
Sunday 28 October 2018 - 10am (Rain Date: Sunday 4 November)
From Raroa to Truscott Ave, up and along Northern Walkway ridge (near Mt Kaukau) and back!

Supporting Raroa Intermediate School's fundraising campaign for our new Covered Outdoor Learning Area.
The COLA is an awesome new structure that will provide a complete weatherproof shelter and multi-use sports floor over the main school courtyard, approximately 30m x 18m, providing a major learning and recreation asset to the students of Raroa daily. Check out the display at the School!

Entry is open to anyone! The support and involvement of the whole community of Johnsonville is welcomed for this fun family day!

Finish Line Festival Before and after the walk there will be coffee and food stalls, entertainment and activities. So make a morning of it, walk the walk and stay afterwards.

Prizes and prize giving: Over $1,000 of spot prizes will be distributed at 11.45 am

Route: Starting and finishing from Raroa Intermediate, you'll walk across Burma Rd through Onslow College, down Eliott St to Truscott Ave and the Johnsonville Park reserve. Head up the south (left) track of the Northern Walkway to the skyline ridge, with views of Mt Kaukau, Makara and South Island. Walk north along the ridge and down the north track, then back to Raora, about 60-90 mins return!

To manage our road crossing into Onslow College, and also the flow of walkers on the walking track, we will start in three groups that best suits you or your family/group:

10.00 am - Energetic
10.05 am - Sunday Strollers
10.10 am - Family Pace
11.00 am - Finish Line Festival and entertainment starts!

11.45 am Spot Prize Winners announced

Have A Go: Have a test walk! We recommend that you grab some friends and have a warm-up walk prior to the day. It'll be worth it!

Bring: a water bottle, appropriate clothing and footwear - trainers or walking boots are a must - no jandals or sandals!! The walk up the track is moderately steep and narrow in places, and may not be suitable for children under 6. It is not accessible for buggies or wheelchairs, although the route to Trustcott Ave Park is.

Don't Bring: Dogs, scooters, skates, bikes and trikes are not permitted.

Thanks for supporting Raroa and our community!
