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.
Neuroendocrine Cancer NZ (formerly Unicorn Foundation NZ) is a registered charity provides support and information to patients, families and medical professionals involved in the treatment for Neuroendocrine Tumours (NET Cancer).
Funds raised will contribute towards supporting clinical research, lobbying for funding and further treatment options to become available to NZ neuroendocrine patients, NET nurse services and building and supporting the NET cancer community.
He made it! 22 February 2021
After a gruelling 13.5 hours in sweltering heat, Luke finished the 56km Ultra Mountain marathon, still with a smile on his face. Thank you so much to all who've supported Luke on this adventure. Your donations and words of encouragement did give him that extra motivation.
CONGRATULATIONS LUKE and thank you for choosing Unicorn Foundation NZ to fundraise for. Your efforts will certainly make a difference to those in our NET Cancer community. We are so grateful!
