Running 100km 4 those with Rare Diseases

PAGE CREATOR: Stacey Smith
EVENT: Tarawera Ultramarathon 2013
EVENT DATE: 16/03/2013


On March 16th I will be running the 100km Tarawera Ultramarathon. I'll do all the hard work- train for and complete this event, and along the journey want to raise awareness and fundraise for my chosen charity.

I have chosen to fundraise for the New Zealand Institute for Rare Disease Research.

These guys exist to promote opportunities for research into rare diseases and seeks to accelerate knowledge that will lead to prevention, treatment and cure. they help people with rare diseases in NZ and support their families also.

I have had a rare auto-immune disease since 2005 but because of the hard work and research by people like these guys, I am now living a healthy, stable and manageable life!

I'm out to prove that there are no boundaries and to remind people that you set your own limits, do not let a disease/illness/injury distinguish who you are and what you will achieve.

To follow my training progress check out my blog at www.staceysmith.co.nz

Select the 'Make a donation' button below. It's simple, fast and totally secure.

If you live in New Zealand your donation is tax deductible and a receipt will be issued.

So please donate- big or small, to an amazing cause.

Many thanks for your support,
