CAROLINE BOYD MEMORIAL WALK/RUN
November 22 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm
This year we are planning to have an informal run or walk to remember and celebrate the life of Caroline Boyd on Sunday 22nd November 2020 starting at 10:30am from the Paekakariki Memorial Hall.
We know we have to be organisationally nimble owing to potential pandemic restrictions which can come into play at any time. Our approach has been “If Plan A fails, remember there are 25 more letters”.
Accordingly there will be no registration or entry fees required, and we only ask that you turn up on the day and bring cash to make a donation to the Memorial Fund.
There are two courses and you may choose whichever on the day:
(a) 5.5km walk or run with or without dog
(b) 9 km run with or without dog
To those planning to participate, please email [email protected] to let us know.
MEMORIAL FUND GRANTS
Your generous donations and family funding over the last 3 years has meant that the Caroline Boyd Memorial Fund has now reached its goal of becoming a perpetual fund. The Boyd Fund now stands at $76,000 (threshold is $75k).
This year’s grants round has been postponed due to the pandemic and will now be held in Feb/March 2021. If you know of people or groups that require funding and that meet the fund’s purposes, please encourage them to apply to the Nikau Foundation (https://www.nikaufoundation.nz/apply-for-a-grant). The Boyd Fund will support grants for (a) supporting young people, in particular their educational needs, (b) addressing issue affecting women, and (c) supporting local community networks and activities.
More information will be sent to potential and actual participants 2 weeks before the event.
