Jennian Homes is proud to have been the naming rights sponsor of the New Zealand Track and Field Championships in 2019, held at the new Nga Puna Wai, in Christchurch.
With this sponsorship, Athletics NZ and Jennian Homes strengthen the bond they share, building opportunities for individuals to thrive in their communities.
The Jennian Homes NZ Track and Field Championship, one of the country’s oldest sporting events dating back to 1889, was held on 8-9-10 March 2019 at Nga Puna Wai, in Christchurch and featured many of New Zealand’s top athletes, from Rio Olympians like Eliza McCartney and Tom Walsh, right through to the best U18 and U20 provincial talent, all vying to win a national title, and for some, qualification for higher honours.
In announcing the initial partnership, Athletics New Zealand Chief Executive, Linda Hamersley, said “Its fantastic to have Jennian Homes on board to support this national championship event. Were grateful to have a growing family of sponsors who contribute so much to enabling us to grow the grassroots of the sport as well as helping us run major events like the Jennian Homes New Zealand Track and Field Champs”.
“We have seen, after the successes of Rio, young people watch their sporting heroes and are inspired by them. Having Jennian’s sponsorship means we can organise this key event, meet our financial targets and our members expectations and invest some money back into the local area to help grow the next generation,” says Hamersley.
Jennian Homes have shown an increasing support of sport and the community with partnerships with the New Zealand Olympic Committee, NZ Golf as well as providing long standing assistance to the Heart Foundation, their main charity.
Jennian Homes Chief Operating Officer Aidan Jury said, “Throughout history we can all remember moments of sporting greatness around the Athletics track and the current level of talent with NZ’s finest athletes is no exception.
The Jennian Homes team is proud to be supporting young Kiwis in their effort to excel in sport while continuing the long Jennian track record of community support.
As a proud supporter of the NZ Olympic and Commonwealth teams, Jennian understands the importance and pressure of qualification for major international events, and wish all athletes well in the NZ Track & Field Championships.”
The Jennian Homes NZ Track & Field Champs are sure to attract a lot of attention from athletics and sports fans alike with so many of New Zealands elite athletes competing.
