Brittany runs a marathon 🏃

$1,328 donated
Given by 24 generous donors in around 3 months

I'll be raising money for the New Zealand Organisation of Rare Disorders by running a marathon in September.


I've always thought running wasn't my gig, especially not for 42.2km. Yet here I am, having signed up for one in September.

Every day, families are affected by health conditions and the diagnosis of genetic disorders they would have never anticipated. Many of these disorders are so rare, no one else in New Zealand may be diagnosed and it can be so difficult to find support from people that have experienced these or have knowledge of these disorders.

I might hate running, but for 14 weeks, then a grand total 5 hours (here's hoping) I'll be able to make a difference to families that often have a lifetime of difficult times and hard situations.

Brittany Vining's involvement (page creator)

I intend to study as a genetic counsellor, and raising money for families that have children with rare disorders is something I would be honoured to do.

Marathon complete!  2 September 2018

Thanks to everyone for all the support and donations - I completed the marathon yesterday with no major injuries and a time of 6 hours! There were plenty of hills, lots of mud, and some absolutely amazing scenery, and I was so proud to represent the NZORD for the event and help raise awareness for the work they do. This page will close at midnight tonight, so if there were any last minute donations after seeing my efforts please donate quick!
