Sophie's Journey to 21km for the Waipuna Hospice

Papamoa Beach, Papamoa

I am training to run my very first half marathon to raise funds and awareness for the Waipuna Hospice. This hospice holds a strong place in my heart. They provided my Dad the best care in his final days on Earth, alongside catering to my family and friend's needs during this time.

My Dad's birthday is coming up on the 9th of October and his two-year anniversary on the 26th of January and as these sad times approach, I remain grateful for the help and care the hospice provided us during our last days together. #runforrich #doinitfordad

Hurdle to 21km...  22 November 2021

Hey friends and family,

Firstly, I want to say thank everyone for the continued support for my journey to 21km - the results have been overwhelming and I am so grateful to everyone for donating.

I have had a wee hurdle in my training, after being discharged from the hospital at 4:30am on Friday morning with what started as 'COVID-like symptoms', we have since learned I have been hit with viral meningitis.

Although this means I won't be able to complete my 21km as planned this weekend, it brings more opportunities! Not only to raise more funds and awareness for the hospice but to train harder when I have recovered to smash the 21km!

If all the stars align, I am hoping to complete my race on New Year's Eve - but no pressure on this date as my health is most important during this time! I'll keep you all posted as to when I am back in my running shoes and when the race day is near!

Thanks again for all of your kindness, care, love, and support! I'll be back on my feet in no time! For now, let's hit $5,000 for Waipuna Hospice #runforrich🌻
