Major sponsor Bronwyn Kay said that they believe strongly in our community. “So many of our athletes go on to be great ambassadors for our region. As health and wellness are the main thrusts in life, this fits well with our ethos. Encouraging the young to be all they can be through sport, great coaches and strong relationships. Teaching teamwork which is the cornerstone of great businesses. We are so proud to be the main sponsor. We wish all participants well and know that winning isn’t everything. It’s how you played the game,” said Ms Kay.
