An evening for cancer research
Join us at Foxglove for the Sahara Charity Challenge Canapes & Auction, and hear why we’re tackling one of the world’s ultimate physical challenges.
Thursday, 28th February 2013, we'll be sending the boys off in style with a sumptuous event on the Wellington Waterfront. During the night we'll be running an auction of sought-after items including high profile sports memorabilia, sports and entertainment products, and many others.
All proceeds will be going to the Malaghan Institute to continue their valuable work into medical research. Find out more about them here www.malaghan.org.nz
Why are we doing this?
We're looking to test our limits in places we’ve never been by racing the Marathon of the Sands in April next year - 243 km run across the Sahara Desert over six days - it's described as "the toughest foot race in the world”.
Our entire campaign is dedicated to the Malaghan Institute - NZ's leading medical research facility, focused on finding cures for cancer, asthma, arthritis, multiple sclerosis and infectious disease.
Along the way we hope to inspire others to take on extreme physical challenges, or just take the next step.
