Hi there. Thanks for visiting my fundraising page.

This year I'm running the Auckland Half Marathon for the Starship Foundation. It's a great privilege to play a tiny part in assisting them to raise funds. These go towards purchasing new medical technology, enabling vital research and building refurbishments at Starship Children's Hospital.

I visited the hospital recently to see first hand the impact fundraising has on the quality of facilities for the children, their families and staff.

This year Level 6 was reopened after 8 months of renovations. Of the $6 million needed to complete the project, $5 million came from donations to the Starship Foundation.

Parents can now stay in the same rooms as their children, patients now have single rooms, the whole facility is bright, welcoming and as homely as a hospital can be. Plus the staff have more efficient work stations meaning they have more time to care for the patients. This wouldn't have been possible without the tremendous generosity of people like you.

I'd love to blow my fundraising target out of the water so more children can receive the treatments they need so they too have the option of running a marathon.

But I need your help. Please.

Many thanks for your support - you rock!

Cheers, Ben
