Sunny May days in Ahuriri ...

The air is fresh, the days are clear ... it must be time for an A.G.M, a marathon through the vines and a chance to mingle at a Meet & Greet.

It's racetime again ...

It's time for  the second Hawke's Bay International Marathon this weekend, with 3km, 10km, 21km and 42km race options on a flat course through vineyards and olive groves. If you're racing, or supporting racers, grab yourself a breakfast in Ahuriri or head back for a well-earned drink and bite to eat in the setting sun after all the hard work is done.

Making a difference in Hawke's Bay

In 2015, the Foundation distributed $170,000 across 44 community organisations in Hawke’s Bay, supporting children, young people and their families, older adults, community development, health, the arts and the environment.
