St Johns Rotary members have entered a team into the Cure Kids $10 Queenstown Challenge almost every year since the first team of Beryl and Rotaractor Sam Gordon (pictured) competed in 2006. 
The next $10 Queenstown Challenge is in March 2017 and the two teams are: Team 1 is David and Emma, and Team 2 is Frances and Michelle Baillie. Cure Kids was founded by Rotary and many clubs and those in the wider community support their life-saving research into cures for serous, often life-threatening, childhood illnesses.  What better way to 'leverage' a donation to Cure Kids than by making a donation via one of out teams and then to enjoy the excitement of watching the team live via the internet as it completes the challenge!  Email or speak to a team member if you would like to support them with a donation or in some other way as they prepare.
The club will hear much more of this exciting venture over the next few months and it is hope we all get into the excitement of the event and support their fundraising. 
Of course, these Rotary teams show the support of Rotary for Cure Kids given Rotary founded them, and also tremendous publicity for our club.  Frances is CEO of Cure Kids and our club Publicity Director, Rosemary, worked for Cure Kids for many years.  Beryl is one of three appointed Rotary Members of Cure Kids.  So the connection is strong.
