Whakatāne is to experience its very first ‘Glo Rush’ on Friday 14 October, thanks to the Whakatāne District Youth Council.

Following on from the success of the Colour Rush event, the Youth Council is now hosting Glo Rush, which sees participants run or walk a 4km course along the Warren Cole Walkway with glow-in-the-dark clothing and accessories.

The event starts from the Whakatāne Rose Gardens at 7:45pm and follows the Warren Cole Walkway towards the Bridge before returning to the Rose Gardens. There will be food trucks present, Q97 will be broadcasting, and there are a host of great spot prizes, including a scenic DC3 flight with Air Chathams and a trip with White Island Tours, amongst others.

The event is $10 for those under 12 years of age, $20 for those over 12, and each entrant gets a t-shirt and glow accessories. Anyone interested in taking part can register online (www.whakatane.com/glorush) prior to 30 September, or you can pay at the Council Civic Centre up until the event. Limited registrations will be taken at 6pm on the event day.

  18. I have observed that over the course of constructing a relationship with real estate owners, you’ll be able to get them to understand that, in every real estate purchase, a percentage is paid.

In the process, they commit their money as well as time to complete, as best they will, the duties of an agent. Those obligations include revealing the home by marketing, presenting the home to all buyers, developing a sense of buyer urgency in order to make prompt an offer, preparing home inspections, controlling qualification check ups with the loan company, supervising maintenance tasks, and facilitating the closing of the deal.
