Khandallah School is hosting the Kids’ Kaukau Challenge on 12th November and we’d love the children of your school to join us.

This event is essentially a fun walk/run/skip/dance up and down Mt Kaukau with a celebration of the kids’ achievements afterwards in the form of a food fiesta and games.

While this event is a fundraiser for Khandallah School, it is primarily a community event with the opportunity for kids to raise money for a charity of their choice by collecting sponsorship money if they wish.

Our registration system is already live – all kids aged 5-15 years old need to be registered to participate. For $15 ($25 for 2 kids, $35 for 3 kids) each child receives a running bib, timing chip and goodie bag. Children aged 5-7 need to be accompanied by someone 16+, children aged 8+ can go without an adult as the route will be well marshalled. Adults and preschoolers do not pay to go along as support crew.
