Outlook for Life take on Hamilton



Dressed in sparkly green skirts, the Outlook for Life team were a sight for sore eyes at the Hamilton Half Marathon recently.

There were over 60 representatives from Outlook for Life entered in the run event and were one of the biggest groups there.
The annual event, which supports the Child Cancer Foundation, had several walk and run events and the Outlook group had representatives competing in all of them
The course was described as a mostly rural track and the weather held out, with the sunshine coming through for the prize giving and lunch afterwards.
Outlook member, Laurinda Lewis, took out first in the half marathon for her age group, while Kevin Maddern came third in his age group for the 10km run.
“Many achieved personal bests in their runs or walks and all had a fantastic time. It was a great day out for all ages and an awesome family event,” says Outlook for Life’s, Kim Keary.
“We all look forward to the next event so we can represent Franklin. Remember to wave when you see us walking and running the streets of Pukekohe.”

Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
