To run a marathon while playing an overnight game of non-stop Backyard Cricket and raise awareness and funds towards I am Hope.
A group of first year freshers who crossed paths at UC have been united under the same goal. To run the distance of a marathon, while playing a friendly game of non-stop backyard cricket. Our aim for this endeavour is to raise $42,000, with the funds raised going towards the I am Hope Gumboot Fund, which enables free mental health counselling for NZ youth.
This will be taking place over the 28/29th of May.
I am one of the members of the Marathon Innings 1st XI
