Running for Raukatauri at Auckland Marathon
20 OCTOBER 2019
Join in New Zealand’s biggest, most iconic, colourful, cultural running celebration. This is what Auckland is about.
There are five race distances from a 2.2km Kids Run to a full Marathon, with no rules in how you run them - solo at pace, walking tall, team shuffle, or run as a Charity Hero. Welcome one, welcome all.
Anyone can run for a cause that is close to their hearts through the ASB Auckland Marathon and we want that cause to be the life-changing work of the Raukatauri Music Therapy Centre! Join our team – Running for Raukatauri – here.
We've created this team because we want to raise money and make a difference for the Raukatauri Music Therapy Centre by participating in 2019 ASB Auckland Marathon. Raukatauri is the country's only music therapy centre and provides life-changing services for New Zealanders in need from Hawke’s Bay to the Far North.
The more people that know about 2019 ASB Auckland Marathon, the greater the impact, so please also spread the word by sharing our page with your friends and family. If you’re not a runner or a walker and still want to help out, you can donate to our team through the ‘Give Now’ button. Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!

Host an event
Our primary aim here at the Centre is make music therapy available to all in need, and to that end we subsidise the cost of all our sessions. We receive no direct government funding and therefore need to raise $840,000 each year to continue to keep the Centre, and all of our outreach and satellite programmes, running. We actively seek gifts and donations and welcome any fundraising events run on our behalf - we are extremely grateful for all donations, large or small!
Gigs, art shows, raffles, garage sales, mufti days, cakestalls, sponsored runs, swims and bike rides ... these are all great ways to have some fun and raise funds to assist the work we do here at the Raukatauri Music Therapy Centre. We have brochures, pull up banners, collection buckets and marketing materials we can provide for any event you would like to run and may also be able to provide an additional pair or two of hands to help.
So get your friends together, put your thinking caps on, and give Rachel or Jen a call on 09 360 0889 with any ideas you might have. It truly is appreciated!
