Movember winnings give kiwi kids a sporting chance

In November, Urban Partners got in behind the annual Movember campaign with a team of 7 good men growing moustaches to raise funds for men’s health programmes and increase awareness of the health risks men face.

The Urban Partners team raised $8,810 for the Movember Foundation, the most sponsorship dollars raised by a team of 10 or less in New Zealand. The prize, $2,500 worth of adidas kit, was donated to the For Everyone Foundation, a New Zealand charity set up by Ali Williams, Dan Carter and Richie McCaw.

The For Everyone Foundation helps people to help others by funding small projects that make a big difference - encouraging active participation and boosting community spirit. Schools, clubs and community groups can apply on the For Everyone website and anyone can visit the site to vote for their favourite group.

We’re please to announce that the winner of the $2,500 prize was Waithohi JAB - Waitohi Rugby Club Juniors - based in Picton. Many of the club’s junior players come from families of limited means and the club will use the prize to provide them with shorts, socks and balls.
