Hipporoller Race – Womens Day 2013

The Hippo Water Roller Project celebrated Women’s Day 2013 on Friday, August 09 at the Pretoria Botanical Gardens with Dads-in-the-Picture, and the Emperors Motorcycle Club. We hosted a few races using standard buckets and Hippo Water Rollers (pink rollers in support of Women’s day).

The race comprised participants to fill buckets of water at point A, and run to point B where they used the buckets to fill the rollers with water, and then run back to point A using the roller. This demonstrates how much water a roller can accommodate, as well as how easy it is to use compared to traditional buckets.
