Auckland man to run seven marathons in seven days for children’s charity

Ripu Bhatia Reporter from Community News

A runner will complete seven marathons in as many days to raise money for underprivileged children.

West Auckland man Harrison Sanders, 23, said he wanted to experience a struggle, and encourage others to make a change with him.

“There are tens upon thousands of kiwis children that are going without food and the basic essentials to get by over this time of joy,” he said.

“So this year, I wanted to help out those who are in need over this time of joy.”

The primary school teacher will complete the runs from December 13 to 19, starting from Hobsonville School and running around west Auckland.

“The route will be the same every day, and I would love people to join in for parts of it whether it be running, biking, scootering, or even driving alongside,” Sanders said.

He has partnered with Pak n Save Westgate, Breaker and Tuatara Baseball, and every $100 raised will supply a child with a $75 Pak n Save voucher, $25 towards school stationary and a free sports ball.

Sanders previously ran 45km a week in the space of a year to raise money for mental health, alzheimers and epilepsy charities.

“Nothing prepares you for this amount though. So I look forward to the mental game I will be faced with,” he said.

“The route will be the same every day, and I would love people to join in for parts of it whether it be running, biking, scootering, or even driving alongside.”

He has set up a Givealittle to receive donations.
