We are excited to be a participating charity for the Auckland Marathon.

We are very happy to announce that we already have 17 members of ‘Team Diabetes’ who are training and fundraising on behalf of us for the Auckland Marathon. These include working professionals who have a link to diabetes through their family members as well as Health professionals. Big thanks to those who are already involved and are making such an effort on behalf of us.

To date, we have raised over $4000, but still have a way to go until we reach our $40,000 goal. Many of our team members have been hosting events such as bake sales and clothing sales on our behalf to help with getting to their fundraising goals.

If you’re keen to join the team, you can either do so as a PYO (Pay your Own) runner or a Gold Runner. A pay your own runner pays their own entry fee and has no fundraising commitment, but is welcome to set up a page and fundraise if they’d like. A Gold Runner has a fundraising commitment of either $1500 or $2000 depending on the length they are running.

1. To sign up as a PYO runner, you just need to go to the Auckland Marathon website and enter and pay for your own entry as well as register your interest by selecting us on the ‘Charities’ page.

2. To apply to be a Gold runner and fundraiser, go to the following link. There are limited Gold runner places and we have filled about half of our places so far, so get in quick.

The benefits of walking or running for us are as follows:

As a PYO runner you will receive:
• A Free Dri-fit T-shirt if you are one of the first 100 runners that raise $100 for us
• Auckland Branch cheer squad on the day
• Pre and post-event function hosted by our branch
• Regular contact, encouragement and support from our team
As one of our very special 15 Golden Runners, we ask you to commit to raising a minimum of $1500 (quarter or half marathon) or $2,000 (full marathon) for our branch. We are over half way with filling our gold runner spots, so if you are keen get in quick.

As a Golden Runner you will receive:
• Free entry into your chosen event
• Invitation to the Exclusive Gold Runner event in August
• Access to Q & A online training resource
• A free Dri-fit exclusive ‘Gold runner’ T shirt
• Auckland Branch cheer squad on the day

Looking forward to hearing from you soon and to supporting you along your journey to the Marathon.
