Fundraising Events

Devonport Half Marathon 20 Nov 2016 Despite the severe weather warning, Team CNZ consisting of 26 runners and walkers braved the wet and windiness and completed each of their races with some outstanding results. Together, we raised $1227 for our Auckland Kids Club. Afterwards, everyone huddled under our tents and enjoyed a sausage sizzle. Each participant walked away with a goody bag filled with gluten free products! 

This fundraising model is one that we plan to use for other regions in New Zealand to raise funds for their Kids Clubs. If you're interested in helping to organise a local fundraiser event, get in touch with us by emailing marketing@coeliac.org.nz. We have a CNZ gazebo, teardrop flag, BBQ, trestle tables and chairs available for use.
