Every year a team of runners and walkers, known as the Running 4 Rights team, participates in the Auckland Marathon to raise awareness and project funding for people affected by leprosy.
Click here to find out more on joining this years Running 4 Rights team.
This year we invited people from all across the country (not just Auckland) to get involved in Running 4 Rights. They chose to run/walk/swim/cycle in their local fun run, marathon, triathlon or any other event you think fits the bill. If you are interested in setting up a Running 4 Rights team in your community (or you may even want to go solo!) contact Gillian today.
As a member of the Leprosy Mission's Running 4 Rights Team you will receive:
A Running 4 Rights t-shirt
A finish line revitalising pack
Help getting sponsorship
Support on the day
The wonderful feeling of satisfaction having raised awareness and project funding for individuals and families affected by leprosy!
