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.

Steven from Superior Renovations

✨First Announcement ✨ (Another surprise coming soon!)

Although it felt like everything slowed down during the lockdowns last year, the team has been working very hard behind the scenes (continually building the business to better serve our clients and being optimistic about the future) and as a result, we are extremely excited to announce that we will be officially opening a renovation showroom!! 🥳🤩

Client experience and their personal stories is at the very heart of Superior Renovations – It is where it all began and it is what defines ours systems and processes today – to be client-focused and to treat every client as a story of it’s own and not just another transaction.

This is the exact reason why we’re launching our showroom for own clients, we want to improve the experience that clients go through with us by being able to see a spectrum of completed kitchen/bathrooms. It will provide everything they need in one space to better envision their own renovation plan, as a result, committing to a renovation plan for their home with confidence.

Keep an eye on our Facebook page for the launch date/location next month, we’re excited to see the feedback we’re going to get from clients!

We look forward to seeing you there!
