Lucy runs the Auckland Half Marathon

$1,150 of $3,000 goal
Given by 31 generous donors in 9 weeks

This October, Lucy from Auckland will be running the half marathon (21.1km) in to raise funds for the UpsideDowns Education Trust!


Lucy has been working with Charlie, a long-time UpsideDowns member for four years now. She has decided to run the Auckland half marathon this year to raise money for UpsideDowns who supported Charlie from the time he was only 1 until he was 15 years old.

UpsideDowns provides essential speech and language therapy for over 200 Kiwi kids like Charlie who have Down syndrome. This crucial early intervention gives kids with Down syndrome their best chance to learn to speak, read, and write, and to live full, independent, and healthy lives.

Lucy is looking forward to embracing this challenge to help other awesome kids like Charlie realise their full potential.
