Today (Wednesday 18 Sept) we did the one and only...... WESTPAC CHOPPER CHALLENGE! We are doing fitness to raise money for the Westpac Rescue Helicopter. The top fundraisers get a ride in the helicopter for their efforts, how cool is that! Duncan and Kimi our instructors gave us a pep talk before we started. First we did the vertical hang, where we needed to free hang for 60 secs on our playground. After hanging around we did a shuttle race where we worked together to move weights up and down the obstacle course. Next we did the stretcher carry where we carried a patient (pretend of course) 50 metres, that was very tiring. We finished off the challenge with 30 sit-ups, 25 push-ups, 25 burpees and 30 star-jumps. To celebrate the completion we finished off with a game of tugger war. Overall it was challenging as expected, awesome and loads of FUN!
