Local Runacres Insurance broker, Sam Marett, accompanied Vodafone Warriors team members to Edmonton Primary School on Friday, 25 May. Sam and the Warriors crew visited the Te Atatu South school to bring the children an interactive, fun and educational presentation about health and fitness, the Warriors and of course to hand over lots of pressies.
Whilst at the school, a special family were also acknowledged for their contribution to the school and were given a Warriors family extravaganza gift pack sponsored by Runacres Insurance. The pack included family tickets to a game with VIP passes to meet their favourite player post-match, a chance to run the match ball on field at the start of the game, as well as a super cool Warriors home jersey and a limited edition football, signed by the team.
“Seeing the joy on all the kids faces when they set eyes on the players was really so awesome. I’m so glad we were able to be there, get caught up in the excitement and bring the kids a fun Friday afternoon’s entertainment,” said Sam.
The family extravaganza pack was purchased on auction in support of KidsCan by Runacres Managing Director David Crick. David immediately decided that he wanted to share the pack with a deserving family who would truly appreciate the experience.
David commented: “It’s always great to support a worthy cause like KidsCan. It was even better when we are able to pay it forward and share this awesome prize with a fantastic family who not only love the team and rugby league but do so much to support their school and local community.”
