About

100km Run 4 Homes Of Hope

Project 2013-02-04 23:41:40 +1300

On the 16th of March, 2013 I will be running the Tarawera Ultramarathon  Race (100kms) to raise money for the Homes of Hope.  

"Homes of Hope" provide the highest quality residential foster care in a family-like environment for children and young persons in need of care and protection for as long as they require it. Developing confident, competent, caring young people who can rightly take their place as contributing members of society, using their gifts, passions and skills to the fullest.

And yes the run! Well I have never attempted 100km, so I am going to be breaking new ground there. Its going to be an effort for sure, but I feel I have been doing the sufficient training to make it happen. And yes this auction closes on 8pm 16/03/13, the day that I start (and finish!) this event in Rotorua, so get pledgeing!!!!!

I would love to help this charity as much as possible with what I am about to embark on. As is said I haven't run this distance before, and what a great reason to do it, to raise money for a extremely worthy cause. Any donation will be massively appreciated! Thanks for you time :)

Hi all,

This maybe the last vid I post and im about to head out the door to get to Rotorua, but thank you all VERY VERY much for your support on this PledgeMe page, I am amazed at what can be achieved for such a brilliant cause just by going for a run. I reached my initial financial goal for Homes of Hope pretty early on, and now just a small amount off my next goal of $1000 for the charity, so keep spreading the word as theres only 50 hours to go till it closes!

I have heard through the grapevine that theres going to be one of the kids from the organisation at the finish line in support of the run im doing, so thats very special to me, and hope im going to be in one piece to make it there to say "hi"! 

Cool, well thats me and all I can really do is drink some more h2o and keep the pasta rolling in! 

And some admin! If you claimed any rewards, I will be receiving your details after the pledge closes and ill send them out to you pronto. 

All the best,

Barrett
