Running For A Cause
We’d like to say thank you to some Hospice Heroes who have run the distance for Waipuna Hospice and helped us raise crucial funds.
Jamie, Kael, Cameron, and Iti, took on the challenge of running 400km in 24 hours for Waipuna Hospice in September. They put in absolutely everything they had, and despite serious injuries, rain, wind, sleep deprivation, and absolute exhaustion they managed to push through and complete 100km each, plus some! In total, the team ran 440km and raised $6129.
Katie Oliver also took on a worthy challenge of running the Tauranga half-marathon for Waipuna Hospice. Katie ran in memory of her late aunty Karen, who was a Waipuna Hospice patient. Not only did she smash her challenge, Katie managed to raise $2,200 for Waipuna Hospice which is an amazing accomplishment. According to Katie, her aunty was with her every step of the way.
Thank you to Katie, Jamie, Cameron, Kael, and Iti, and everyone who donated and made these amazing accomplishments possible.
