nib kicks off kids' relay comp

The nib Little Legends $10K relay is back for a third year as part of nib’s commitment to encouraging more Kiwi kids to get active.

Monday, April 24th 2023, 5:01PM

The race will involve 10 junior rugby clubs and intermediate schools from around Auckland, North Harbour and Northland, selected to compete in a half-time relay race at the Blues vs Hurricanes match at Eden Park on Saturday, 27 May.

Selected teams will compete for a $10,000 cash prize to support the health and wellbeing of junior players. Each team will consist of 10 relay runners aged between 11 – 13 years of age. 

“At nib we’re passionate about proactive health and wellbeing, and junior sport is a great way to get kids active and instil positive habits from a young age,” nib chief executive, Rob Hennin says.

“The Little Legends $10K Relay is fun and exciting, and it’s also a wonderful way to encourage schools and tamariki to get behind a cause that supports their health and wellbeing.”

Last year’s winning team from Kelston Intermediate School put part of their $10,000 towards travel to Matamata sports camp, where students had the chance to compete with other intermediate schools from across the North Island in a range of sports, from rugby and netball to lawn bowls.

Prize money was also allocated to the installation of a fire extinguisher in each classroom, first aid kits, an Automated External Defibrillator kit (AED) and new basketball hoops.

“Taking part in the nib Little Legends $10K relay has been a massive win for students and staff. It's a great way to help schools and clubs that want to do more for their tamariki through health and sport,” Mr Isoia said.

Blues chief executive Andrew Hore said "i’s always so inspiring to see the impact the nib Little Legends $10K Relay has on our communities. The excitement and teamwork we see from the relay teams each year makes us proud to be partnered with nib to support this kind of mahi.”

Hennin encourages all eligible local schools and rugby clubs to apply.
