Each year we contribute to the community in many ways.
Our primary fundraising efforts go towards Cure Kids through participation in the Cure Kids Great Adventure Race. We have competed every year the race has run since 2012. After it stopped running in 2018, we continued to fundraise and enter new adventure races. Money raised from these events goes directly to scientific research into the life-threatening childhood diseases and conditions affecting New Zealand children and their families. See the Cure kids website for more information. Highlights of our participation to date are:
On 17 Feb 2019, Team Theta entered the Absolute Wilderness Adventure Race, with tough terrain in South Island high country.
On 17 March 2018 Team Theta won the 6th Cure Kids Great Adventure Race, took out the IT Cup again, and raised more than $20,000 for Cure Kids.
On 19 March 2016 Team Theta retained the IT cup, placed sixth overall and raised more than $17,000 in our fifth Cure Kids Great Adventure Race.
On 27 March 2015 we competed in the Cure Kids Great Adventure Race for the fourth consecutive year, again winning the IT cup. Check out our blog for more about our adventures in training and fundraising, and of course hear about race day itself.
Our innovation lab is working with a group of MiniDevs from Newlands Intermediate School to explore the frontiers of virtual and augmented reality and design learning opportunities based on real world challenges.
We regularly support a number of other charities and appeals, including Loud Shirt Day (supporting the treatment of child hearing disorders), Daffodil Day for the Cancer Society, the Red Cross and the Royal New Zealand Foundation of the Blind.
In 2011 we raised funds for the Salvation Army Canterbury Earthquake Appeal, and helped out Christchurch-based IT consulting ﬁrm Clarus, whose ofﬁces were in the worst affected ‘red zone’.
Theta’s Azure experience, consultants who know the council and its environment well, and strong communications were all part of this project’s success.

It was great to work with developers who really got the vision for the project and we could trust to guide us to the right solution. We really felt that they cared about the outcome as much as we did.…

The move to Azure was a bit daunting, but Theta made it easy. They were helpful, approachable, full of tips and had a really practical approach.
