Join us to make a real difference in the lives of those affected by kidney disease. This year, we aim to recruit 15-20 runners and 25 walkers to fundraise over $10,000 for the Kidney Society at the Auckland Marathon, taking place on Sunday 29th October 2023. There's a range of distances for everyone including the Full Marathon, Half Marathon, 11k Traverse, and the 5k Challenge.

Kidney disease affects millions of people worldwide and is a significant public health issue in New Zealand, with around one in ten adults having some form of kidney damage. By participating in the Auckland Marathon, we hope to raise awareness about kidney disease and raise funds to support those who need it. The funds raised will help provide crucial support to people living with kidney disease and their families.   

How we will support you:   
We will support you every step of the way, including:   
- Setting you up with a Give A Little page   
- Providing tips and tricks for fundraising   
- A runner's guide   
- Briefing sessions   
- A T-shirt if you raise over $200   
- Refund of your entry fee and transfer to ‘Charity Superstar’ entry if you raise over $1000
