Holly runs a marathon

42.2kms before I turn 40 - support page to show my favourite charities some aroha and motivate me to finish.

Christchurch, Canterbury

In 2017 I made a commitment to myself to complete one marathon before I turned 40.

So here we are. 2021 and four weeks from my birthday. I've trained for a full year for this, and expected to be running it at an organised event with other participants, instead finding myself in a different position where I am the organiser and am having a crack at completing this solo.

This is where I need your help. Knowing that finishing every km means that these amazing charities/organisations will benefit from some funding is the motivation I need to make this happen. These are special people with big hearts who really help people and animals in need. Whether you pledge me $1 to finish the 42.2kms or $50, every single cent is appreciated and will drive me to finish.
