The Ratana Maramatanga Sports Club was able to facilitate sponsership and contribute $200-00 to enable 16 of our Kaumatua from Ratana to attend this event. A special thanks to Diabetes Manawatu for your grant. Thanks to Adrian Coombe for arranging this. A further thanks to Te Kotuku Hauora o Rangitikei for organising arrangements.
Our Kaumatua Over 60's keep fit class also known as Roopu Rawakore successfully competed at the Kaumatua Olympics that were held in Waitara and hosted by Te Hauora Pou Herenga. This event was packed with 400 competitors and there was a lot of laughter and singing.
The Roopu Rawakore - Ratana Over 60's Keep Fit are held every Wednesday at the Big Shed in Ratana Pa. These ladies exercise and organise their own events and an excellent example of "do it yourself".
The next Kaumatua Olympics is to be held in Palmerston North and this will be a National event.
The Ratana Maramatanga Sports Club is proud to be able to support you where able.
