Unicorn Foundation New Zealand Fundraising Waterfront Half Marathon
April 10, 2018|
The Unicorn Foundation New Zealand has a growing team of keen walkers & runners who took part in the Waterfront Half Marathon on April 8, 2018 in Auckland, New Zealand.
Team Unicorn Foundation New Zealand ran to help raise funds and awareness for the work of the organization, which supports and advocates for patients and families affected by neuroendocrine cancer. Every day another kiwi is diagnosed with NET Cancer and lack of access to the right treatment is a major issue in New Zealand.
Unicorn Foundation New Zealand is the only charity in the country focused on patients with neuroendocrine cancer. Currently NET Cancer patients are self-funding and travel to Melbourne to receive life-changing treatment called PRRT. It costs each patient over $50,000, which many patients simply cannot afford. It is the goal of the organization to help establish PRRT within a NET Cancer specialist centre that will help patients regardless of where they live in New Zealand, no matter what their financial situation is.
Thank you to these special individuals, those who have donated and supported! Go Unicorns!
