CanTeen Run For A Life 2021

Rachel Pitcaithly —

It is with great disappointment that we announce that the 2021 campaign will not take place due to the new outbreak of COVID 19 in New Zealand.

CanTeen holds a special place in the hearts of the Bedean community, however with the uncertainty in our current environment we need to put the safety and learning of our students first. This means that there will be no CanTeen concerts, Run For A Life Run or Home Team celebrations. A lot of work has been done to get us to this point. I would like to whole heartedly thank the CanTeen committee of Clare Wilkinson, Carolyn and Maurice McDermott, Robyn and Mark O’Neill, Kellie Coakley and Carolyne Grant for the hours of work they have put in to mapping and driving routes and finding sponsors.

To our sponsors who have been so very generous in supporting this campaign, thank you and we hope we will be able to rely on your support for our next campaign. A big thank you also to all those who answered our SOS looking for qualified STMS supervisor volunteers. We were heartened by the response we had to this urgent call out and for sponsors, which would have made it possible for us to have achieved the campaign, had it not been for the COVID 19 Delta outbreak.
