Inspired by the resilience of Isabella Douglas, Team Izzy we will be taking on the Auckland Half-Marathon to raise money for Kidney Kids NZ.

The majority of you will already know Isabella's story, but for those of you that don't, i'll give it to you in a nutshell.

At only four weeks old, our precious little pēpē was diagnosed with congenital nephrotic syndrome - a rare kidney condition present at birth. In general terms, Isabella has a genetic defect in her kidney that causes it to filter all of the good, as well as the bad, leaving her deficient in practically all of the necessary vitamins & nutrients your body needs.

In most cases a kidney transplant is the only curative therapy, but through the research and experience of Dr William Wong, we have been fortunate to manage her condition medically to date. That's not to say that she is in the clear, a transplant is still a possibility, but we're positive and riding this wave for as long as we can!

Now, to why we're here.

Our girls a "kidney kid".

And once we learnt about the amazing support Kidney Kids NZ provides for families facing similar circumstance as ours, we knew we needed to do something to give back. Hence the eight of us stepping out of our comfort zones and taking on the challenge to complete the Auckland Half-Marathon, all in the name of raising funds for this great organisation.

It's not going to be easy, but thats exactly the point.

If our little wahine toa can overcome all of her challenges faced to date, then surely we can overcome a 21km run (jog, hopefully not walk....).

We, and Kidney Kids NZ, would love your support.
