Heart Stopper Challenge Manawatu 2012 has now finished
20 May 2012
The Square, Palmerston North
10am - Registration
11am - First plunge
The Challenge: Teams of 4-6 people take the plunge into a spa pool filled with icy water for five minutes.
A great team building event: It only takes 5 minutes, requires no training and a little extra body fat may even help! Create a team theme, come in fancy dress and have a laugh whilst helping to support the many children and families affected by a congenital (from birth) heart condition in your community.
The Inspiration: Every year 450 children undergo open heart surgery in New Zealand. During the surgery a child's chest cavity can be filled with an icy slush to further slow their body’s need for oxygen, giving the surgeon a longer window of operating time.
Entry: There is no entry fee to participate in this event, but we ask that each team member pledges to raise $100 to support the work of @Heart in the Manawatu region.
