Join us in the Auckland Marathon!
- By Dementia Auckland
Last year a bunch of amazing people ran on behalf of Alzheimers Auckland at the Auckland Marathon. Between them, they managed to raise over $17,000. Well, $17,473.64 to be exact. We know because we carefully counted every dollar and then put it into services to help people with dementia 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 (we're so excited we're even rhyming)! Entries for the Auckland Marathon are open now, although you’ll have until November to train (so there’s plenty of time to get fit). The Auckland Marathon itself will be held on Sunday 1st November.
Sign up here - just choose us in the drop down menu of charities and we'll make sure to send through instructions on how to set up a fundraising page. Don't miss out - half marathon entries sold out in two weeks last year!
If you don't feel quite ready and willing to run in the marathon itself, contribute to our team page here. You won't have to run, but you'll still be helping people with dementia to live well.
