Cure Kids was established over 35 years ago to address the lack of research into life-threatening childhood illnesses in New Zealand. In that time Cure Kids has invested over $26 million in vital medical research. This research has helped save many young lives and improved the quality of life for thousands of children.
Our race team of 4 - Julia, Jon, Alan and Paul - are blogging about their adventures in training.
Read about their latest exploits on the Theta Cure Kids Great Adventure Race blog.
This is a big commitment! The race is a multi-discipline 6-9 hour event. Our team of 4 navigate, bike, run/trek, and traverse waterways. As well as the race team, there are 2 back up race team members (just in case!) and a support crew of 4 that helps raise funds/donations, organise and assist the team before and during the race.
By entering a team we’ve committed to a minimum entry fee of $10,750, all of which goes to CureKids. Theta is putting up the first $5,750 which leaves us with $5,000 to raise through donations and other fundraising events. We think Cure Kids is a great charity to support, and we hope that you will too. Anything you can donate is greatly appreciated, and goes straight to Cure Kids and the vital research they support.
Our fundraising page makes it easy to make a donation using your credit card. All the money goes straight to CureKids, all donations over $5 are tax deductible for New Zealand residents and you will be sent a receipt automatically.
As a thank you to our supporters we’re offering a chance to win 1 of 3 great prizes. For every $20 donation (or multiple thereof) we’ll put you into the draw for one of these excellent prizes:
Check our fundraising page after the prize draw dates to see if you are one of the lucky winners.
