Shop local and reap the benefits By DaviD McPherson FOR a first time event, organis- ers are more than happy with last week’s Highbrook Rotary Fun Run and Walk. With options of a 5km or 10km run, or a 5km walk, 330 people including Botany MP Jami-Lee Ross took to the course in the Highbrook Estate overlooking the business area and Tamaki Estuary. Highbrook Rotary spokesman Peter Roylance says the club has received more than 70 messages from people saying how much they enjoyed themselves. “We’re really happy with that and the numbers that turned out, particularly as almost all of them were from Highbrook businesses,” he says. The highlight of the evening event was the presentation of the inaugural Highbrook Business House Challenge Cup, won by the team from the BNZ. “The Rotary Club of Highbrook salutes all those who participated in and supported this, the first annual 10km and 5km fun run and walk,” said club president Richard Myhre. “We know you enjoyed the run and wonderful views from this ele- vated parkland in Highbrook. “We would like to thank those 45 companies that had employees participating, and also those which provided prizes, facilities, food and drink to make this such a great and outstanding success on the night. “Without you it would not have happened. “In particular, David Com- ery, from the Waipuna Confer- ence Suites, offered to be the key sponsor very early in our plan- ning, and we thank him for his generosity. “The Middlemore and Fred Hol- lows Foundations thank you for enabling this inaugural fundraiser to achieve its first year goals and look forward to seeing you again next year.” The final donation figure raised for the two charities is still being finalised. Inaugural event succeeds “The Middlemore and Fred Hollows Foundations thank you for enabling this inaugural fundraiser to achieve its first year goals and look forward to seeing you again next year.” – Richard Myhre, Rotary Club of Highbrook president CHARITY EXERCISE: Left, runners start their 10km journey at the first Highbrook Rotary Fun Run and Walk on March 26; right, the BNZ had a large contingent competing for the Highbrook Business House Challenge Cup. Times and supplied photos Thousands get tested THE head of Counties Manukau Police is pleased a compulsory breath-testing operation found just 0.45 per cent of drivers stopped were over the legal alcohol limit. The operation was run by Counties Manukau Police’s road policing and traffic alcohol groups from Friday, March 21, to the morning of Sunday, March 23. More than 5100 motorists were stopped and breath-tested at police checkpoints, with just 23 found to have excess breath alcohol. Counties Manukau Police district commander, Superintendent John Tims, says: “This is a great result. “We want to make it known that drivers can find a police checkpoint at any time and in any place, and everyone should expect to be breath-tested. “We hope that finding only 23 drivers over the limit out of more than 5100 tested means the message is getting through and people are taking responsibility to ensure they are driving safely on our roads.” It’s hoped the trend of finding few drunk drivers through random compulsory breath-test checkpoints continues in the lead-up to the Easter holiday period. “Everyone who is having a drink this weekend should plan ahead to make sure they have a safe way of getting home, even if it’s just around the corner,” says Mr Tims. “Never get into a motor vehicle with a driver you suspect has had too much alcohol.” The highest breath-alcohol reading recorded during the operation from March 21-23 was more than 1400- micrograms of alcohol per litre of breath. “Unfortunately, 23 people caught over the legal alcohol limit is still 23 dangerous drivers who should not have been on the road,” says Mr Tims. The legal alcohol limit for motorists ■■ aged 20 and older is 400-micrograms of alcohol per litre of breath, or 80-mil- ligrams of alcohol per 100 millilitres of blood. Drivers under 20 have a zero limit.
