Sport Waikato is gearing up to celebrate 30 years of serving Waikato communities to be ‘out there and active’ on March 20th 2016.

Sport Waikato kicks off the celebrations this Friday, the 18th of March with celebratory cake in each of the Sport Waikato offices around the region. This Sunday also marks the start of Sport Waikato’s “30 things in 30 days” Facebook campaign which will see a post made every day to show case what Sport Waikato does.

Sport Waikato Chief Executive Matthew Cooper says it’s an exciting way to explain what we do around the region.

“The posts are going to be ranging from the likes of 30 things to do in your district, 30 healthy eating tips, 30 lunch box or breakfast swaps, to 30 sports clubs you can contact. What we want to share is that Sport Waikato isn’t just all about sport - and we have a real healthy living, physical activity and recreation focus too” said Cooper.

Sport Waikato would also like to take this opportunity to thank the many organisations that they have had support from over the years, and still have support from.

“We’ve had a lot of support over the past 30 years and the impact we have had in the Waikato is a true reflection of the commitment from a number of key Waikato organisations. We want to sincerely thank those organisations and those people who have helped us to serve the Waikato to be “out there and active” for the last 30 years” said Mr Cooper.
