Do You Enjoy a Challenge?
Then why not combine a personal challenge with supporting a charity, prostate cancer effects over 3000 people a year, which is about the same number of women who are effected by breast cancer. Let’s work together and help keep our dads, brothers, sons and uncles alive.
When you sign up as fundraiser, you’ll be joining a group of people who are passionate about supporting the 3000 men diagnosed with prostate cancer every year in NZ.
The funds and awareness from Auckland Marathon will help PCFNZ enormously, and with your help we will be able to continue with research, raising awareness of this disease and supporting men and their families through the prostate cancer journey.
Fundraising doesn’t have to be difficult and we’ll help you every step of the way to ensure you hit your fundraising target. Why not take a look at our list of fundraising ideas to see just how easy it is!
Why run for us?
Kelly’s story – 2016 Charity Hero Runner
“10 years ago, following a medical check-up, Dad was diagnosed with prostate cancer. He immediately started an intensive treatment programme including chemotherapy and radiation however after several years in remission its back and this time very aggressively, spreading to Dad’s lymph nodes, spine and other bones. Unfortunately, his cancer is no longer curable so controlling the spread is our focus going forward.
Last year, I ran the Auckland Marathon to support my Dad and to help raise funds for the Prostate Cancer Foundation who supports patients like Dad and their families.
Get behind this amazing cause – it’s a fantastic feeling to complete the run and to know you’ve made a difference to the lives of prostate cancer sufferers in New Zealand.”
