Fundraising for Speed Freaks - running for recovery.


Thursday 20th - Its on!

An update! Finally, we got here with a new and slightly modified version of the pre-lockdown event.

The 50k Run for recovery is all about connection in Tāmaki Makaurau. The run will officially launch the Speed Freaks in Auckland of which I am excited to be the Programme Lead.

The event will highlight the connections we are building across the city and the positive impacts that can be achieved through the vehicle of running and walking. I will be joined, at various points, along the route by our volunteer coaches and Speed Freaks. Anna Christophorou (Programme Director), and Leo Coles (Consumer Rep), will also be up from Christchurch.

Scheduled for Thursday the 20th of January starting from Pukekohe and taking in the following stops, concluding at Odyssey Adult Residential in West Auckland at 3.00pm.

• Pukekohe – 6 am

• Friendship House , Manukau – 9 am

• Epsom Lodge – 11am

• K Road Merge Café – 12 – 1.30 pm

• The Drug Foundation – 2pm

• Odyssey House – Kai and Finish 3pm

For a full map of the route with timings see here - https://www.google.com/maps/d/u/0/edit?mid=1pkeW9IaJQTE37rXy4kthZUaLVPjQaXyE&usp=sharing

All the money we raise will go towards establishing Speed Freaks in Tāmaki Makaurau, things like events (fees, transport etc), Tee-shirts and recruiting coaches.

Thank you for your patience and support up to this point. If you would like to be involved on the day, please contact me. Happy New year!
