Luke's Ultra Mountain Marathon for NET Cancer

Luke's running an ultra mountain marathon for neuroendocrine (NET) cancer next weekend - Please show your support and donate!


Oooooh it's going to hurt but I've committed and will be running 56 kilometres over mountainous terrain in the Moonlight Shotover Ultra which sets off from Queenstown on February 20th.

This is one of the most scenic and challenging trail runs you can do in New Zealand and I've never done one before. As well as my own personal goals, I want to help raise money and more importantly awareness to support NET patients, Unicorn Foundation staff and neuroendocrine cancer community.

I chose Unicorn Foundation NZ because I never knew about NET cancer until our close friend, Siobhan Conroy, started the organisation in 2012 after being diagnosed and frustrated by the lack of information and treatment available to New Zealanders.

Thank you to anyone who donates. I know the money will make a positive impact and having your support will be encouraging for me on this epic adventure race.
