Oceanswim 2014.jpgJLL are pleased to announce their supporting sponsorship of the New Zealand Ocean Swim Series 2015/2016, a charitable kiwi organisation that runs a series of open water swimming events across New Zealand, motivating thousands of Kiwis to challenge themselves and make positive changes to their health and lifestyles. 

JLL are proud to be celebrating with the Ocean Swim Series for their 10th Anniversary, kicking off the season on the 28th November 2015 through to the 2nd April 2016 with events taking place in Paihia, Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch, Rotorua, Tauranga and the North Shore, showcasing the country’s most popular beaches and waterfront locations. The Ocean Swim Series are in key partnership with Surf Life Saving NZ and to date have raised over $200,000 for the charity.

Nick Hargreaves, Managing Director for JLL New Zealand says, “The sponsorship is part of JLL’s ongoing commitment to NZ communities and enables us to create and maintain a rewarding and welcoming workplace for our staff. Today’s business environment is about getting away from your computer, be active, engage and get out there.”

Hargreaves adds, “We want to encourage more kiwis of all ages to get into the ocean, get fit and healthy and take up a new challenge, as well as develop a healthy and active staff culture.”

JLL understand the overwhelming sense of achievement that is experienced by the thousands that part in the events and will be providing all participants of the nationwide open water swimming events with a text message the instant they cross the finish line detailing the results and the length of their swim when previously participants would have to wait until after the event to view their results online.
