This major prize aligns with all of those values and would have a significant positive financial impact for the winner no matter what their background. I think that anyone would be excited to secure this great prize, which is an incentive to check in to win.”

Some of their sponsorships include; Blues Super Rugby, Auckland Rugby Union, Northern Mystics, ASB Auckland Marathon, Barfoot & Thompson People’s Triathlon, Auckland Writers Festival, Farmers Santa Parade, Barfoot & Thompson NZ Badminton Open, and many more. 

The mobile platform was launched last year to highlight the company's ongoing support within the Auckland and Northland regions, including their affiliation with the New Zealand Olympic Committee by giving away the grand prize of a trip for two to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. 

The inaugural winner for last year’s competition Liz Gill, a born and bred Aucklander, is off to the Olympic Games this year after checking in at only one event in 2019 and encourages others to check in, “Just do it - you never know, I never dreamed I would go to the Olympics -  look what can happen!”
