Shirley's Running for IDFNZ Kids  17 April 2013

Posted by: Givealittle Admin

Shirley has not only volunteered herself, she has also enlisted family members from all over New Zealand and Australia to help the Foundation. In her own words:..gLast year I set myself the personal challenge of running my first half marathon for IDFNZ - no mean feat for this couch potato! The online fundraising was easy to set up, and then it was just down to me to get out and pound the pavement. I had to make time for training, but eventually the enjoyment overcame the pain..... and the satisfaction of running over the Auckland Harbour Bridge then over the finish line was worth it! Nearly $3000 later, I finished - thanks to the financial sacrifice of many individuals who sponsored me to run for IDFNZ! I am amazed at how generous and supportive people were..... so this year I threw the gauntlet to my extended family and they have taken up the challenge to run either the half or full marathon! My brother and his wife are flying in from Perth, as are my sisters from Gore, Dunedin & Havelock North, a sister'in'law from Invercargill and a niece from Christchurch! This year I am going for my first FULL Marathon, which I'm nervous about, but happy to be running and raising awareness for IDFNZ. If you want to join us on November 3, we would love to have you as part of Samfs All4Good Team!- Shirley Davy.
