A fun run set to benefit Whangarei charity Kind Hands Respite Cottage will see participants run, walk or skip the equivalent length of Ninety Mile Beach. Throughout Northland, participants will complete a total of 88 kilometers on their local walking tracks and daily commutes
A massive $25,408 was raised in 2020 and $28,200 in 2021 for Kind Hands, thanks to the local community getting behind this great cause! The funds raised went towards paying for much needed specialist equipment, enabling Kind Hands to support local children who have a disability, are medically fragile and/or are technology dependent.
Scott Coutts, Regional Manager of Classic Builders Northland believes the locality of this challenge makes it meaningful for Northland locals.
For Kind Hands Founder Sharlene Clements, the work Kind Hands offers is a labour of love.
“It has not been easy,” says Sharlene. “We don’t do this for anything back, we do this just for the children. Funding has been the hardest hurdle we have needed to jump.”
“We have received so much support from the community here in Northland, and we are so proud to call this place home.”
