Thirty students from Mangaroa School s running club and 50 from Pinehaven School s running club participated. Students did a series of challenges including slipping and sliding in slime, pacing through streams and creeks, sliding down banks and squirming through mud under a cargo net. They also ran through hoops and were bombarded by parents with water pistols and flour bombs. The event ended with a watering down by the Upper Hutt Rural Fire Force. Students who participated are dedicated members of each school s running club, getting up early to run before school one day a week. The purpose of the event was to provide the children with an oppor- tunity to have some fun and get muddy and messy, and it worked, says Pinehaven principal Kaylene Macnee. Homework pays off Great result: Local girls, from left, Liberte Bretherton, Sophie Cowie, Lottie Upton, the organiser Isabella Upton, Emilie Thompson and Eva Upton count out the $1065.60 they raised for the family of Christchurch girl, Olivia, 4, and her family at the weekend. A homework challenge to clean out her room and collect toys to sell for charity grew into a garage sale that raised more than $1000 for a Christchurch family. Isabella Upton, 7, in year 3 at Silverstream School, was given a homework challenge to clean out her room and collect toys to sell for charity. Always an ideas person she took that challenge even further and decided to organise a garage sale plus a sausage sizzle and cake stall with the help of family, friends and neighbours -- and she wanted the proceeds to go to someone worthy in quake-devastated Canterbury. She heard about Christchurch girl, Olivia, 4, who has a rare and life-threatening vascular tumour condition called lym- phangioma and requires treat- ment at Starship Hospital. Olivia s family home was ruined in the earthquake and her dad lost his job as a result of the devastation to that city s commerce. The only happy thing that has happened recently is the birth of another child six months ago. The weather was great, a good crowd came and as a result they raised such a sum that has Olivia s mum overwhelmed with the generosity of these young girls in thinking of others less fortunate.
