The Mission

“Across 12 months RunThe12 runners will utilise their passion for running to make a positive difference by raising money for local New Zealand charities by participating in 12 iconic running events throughout New Zealand..

In 2017 through to 2022 the focus is New Zealand children’s health and wellness. The three chosen charities for these years are KidsCan, Variety, and Make A Wish Foundation. RunThe12 aims to raise funds and awareness for these charities who make a significant contribution to the health and wellbeing of New Zealand children on a daily basis.

Long term, RunThe12 aims to motivate runners whether they be a ‘Joe the everyday jogger’ or Usain Bolt athlete, throughout New Zealand, becoming involved and running for a cause, not only ourselves as individuals. Essentially, if we can utilise and contribute our passion and hobbies into making a positive difference, charities, donators, runners and receivers are all winning the race!”
