Running the Rock 'n' Roll San Fransisco Half Marathon for KIDS Foundation

Main image

Sick Kids

Karyn Sanson , Auckland Nurse Specialist Extraordinaire is running the Rock 'n' Roll San Francisco Half Marathon to raise funds for IDFNZ KIDS Foundation.

Karyn is one of the amazing medical professionals working with KIDS Foundation transplant patients at Starship Hospital in Auckland.She helps vulnerable patients and families dealing with life threatening medical conditions and liver transplant. Karyn always goes the extra mile to help these brave children and parents.

Karyn’s other passion is running – so it is perhaps not surprising that when she entered the 2015 San Francisco Half Marathon , she decided to raise funds for KIDS Foundation.

Traveling half way round the world to support the children and families she works with , makes Karyn a very special person indeed.

She has set herself two goals :

1.Achieving a personal target of completing the half marathon in 2 hours and 40minutes.

2. Raising $500 for IDFNZ KIDS Foundation

Please help cheer Karyn on to achieve her goals - she needs words of encouragement for the many months of training ahead of her.

Leave her a message or make a small donation towards her fundraising goal

To make it interesting and fun - post a message with your guess of her final finish time; the closest guess will win a KIDS Foundation T shirt !
