Tech teams primed for racing action

Competitors and their support teams are on the final countdown with less than 48 hours until the start of the 2006 Cure Kids Great Adventure Race.

At the official launch of the race last night tech teams seemed in a positive state of mind, especially Cisco.

Jennifer Rutherford, Cisco channel manager, admits being slightly nervous about the course this Friday — understandable after last year’s effort that saw her team rescued after losing the plot in a swamp.

Rutherford has handed the team-captain reins to Mark Heppleston who was talking up his team’s chances last night.

However, Heppleston confessed that he suffered an unfortunate accident in his final training run at the weekend.

“I’d bought a new bike especially for the race and took it out for a trial. God knows what I hit but I ended up with a concussion,” he says.

Forty-five teams have entered the race this year, including IT companies Microsoft NZ, Onesource and Ingram Micro.

Overall $620,000 has been raised for the charity.

Cure Kids organiser Mandy Mee estimates more than 10,000 employees, from all industry sectors, participated in fundraising efforts.
