Marton Foodbank charity for the Mitre 10 Marton Triathlon

The Mitre 10 Marton Triathlon organising committee are delighted to announce that all entry fees for this year’s event will be kindly donated to the Marton Christian Welfare to support the local Marton Foodbank. The Marton Christian Welfare has been operating for 42 years, with major support from church communities and the Mayor.

The organisation has over 50 passionate volunteers all willing to give up their valuable time to help the community and have done so for many years. In 2017 the Marton Food bank supported approximately 80 families over the festive holidays in Marton.

Sarah Vickers, who has been involved in the organisation most of her adult life says, “It is great to be involved in the Mitre 10 Marton Triathlon and help the Marton community to utilize local facilities such as the Marton swim center and Rangitikei college”.

The outcome of the Marton Foodbank is to help the community by networking, collaborating and building relationships with local oragnaisations for the benefit of the Marton community.
Event organisers would like to encourage all participants to donate a can of food, cleaning orhealth products to go towards a hamper which will also be donated to the Marton Food bank.

Registrations for the event are now open, to register go to http://www.sporty.co.nz/mitre10martontriathlon/Entries-1/Enter-online. The event caters for all ages and skill levels offering a short and medium course, registrations close on the 4th of March.
