Supporting the communities that we live and work in is important to the team at Tech 5, and we are proud to make contributions to the following organisations:
At Cure Kids, our purpose is simple: every single day, our researchers are driven to find the cures for life-threatening illnesses that affect many of our children. We focus on raising funds so that vital medical research can continue until our researchers find the cures our kids need. Put simply, we fund the cures, they find the cures.
Researchers find cures for conditions like childhood cancers, heart diseases, Cystic Fibrosis, Sudden Unexpected Death in Infancy (SUDI) asthma, and many more, life-threatening illnesses that mean the children affected often miss out on normal childhood.
AUCKLAND RESCUE HELICOPTER TRUST
For 40 years, ARHT has worked to ensure that the communities of the greater Auckland region have the security of a professional, efficient, emergency air ambulance, search and rescue service available to them. The Auckland based Westpac Rescue Helicopter is staffed full-time by a highly experienced flight crew consisting of pilots, paramedics and crewmen, and operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
Since inception, the service has performed many thousands of rescues and is internationally recognised for its pioneering work in saving lives. ARHT's outstanding contribution was recognised by the world "Association of Aeromedical Services" in 2000 when we were presented with an award for 10,000 accident free missions. The primary aim of the Trust is to provide and develop a highly efficient aero medical service for the benefit of the community at large.
