It's ASB Auckland Marathon time!
- By Dementia Auckland
Can you believe it’s Marathon registration time again!
Last year we were incredibly grateful for the support of a bunch of amazing people who ran the Auckland Marathon on behalf of Alzheimers Auckland. Between us, we managed to raise over $10,000 for our cause – that’s a whole lot of money to put towards helping those Aucklanders living with dementia! We know because we carefully counted every dollar and then put it into services to help people with dementia to live well, as well as carer programmes for their families.
It doesn’t matter if you’re as slow as a tortoise or as fast as a hare, we’d love to have you on our Alzheimers Auckland team this year (so much that it rhymes)! Whether you’re in it to beat your personal best, or simply want to do something that makes you feel great, we’re kindly asking that if you’re feeling fit, healthy and up for it again this year, please run for us!
And you don’t have to do it alone – register as a team and you could raise double the money while having double the fun!
Entries for the Auckland Marathon are open now, although you’ll have until October to train (there’s plenty of time to get prepared!). Make sure you don’t miss out this year, especially if you’re planning on doing the half-marathon – entries sold out in two weeks last year! The Auckland Marathon itself will be held on Sunday30th October.
Along the way, we’ll be running right beside you, with tips, tricks and encouragement, so don’t hesitate to get in touch if you’re unsure about anything or need an extra boost of encouragement!
On behalf of Alzheimers Auckland, thank you so much for your support. It is only through your help that we are able to support people with dementia and their carers to live well.
