Wellington marathon

Heart Racers raise thousands of dollars for the Heart Foundation at the Wellington Marathon 2018.

Heart Foundation team at Wellington Marathon

The Wellington Marathon may be over for this year, but we’re still feeling inspired by the event.

Despite challenging weather conditions, our team of Heart Racers took part in several of the races on the day, from the 10k run or walk to the Half Marathon and the Full Marathon.

Vital funds for heart research

We’re so proud of the 39 Heart Racers and their supporters who managed to raise an amazing $15,054 for the Heart Foundation. We’re inspired by what they’ve achieved and we are very grateful for all their efforts in the lead up to the races and on the day.

This money will go towards cutting-edge heart research and specialist training for cardiologists. Every donation can help save a life.

Thank you to everyone who took part, including around 100 fabulous, hardworking volunteers, and to everyone who donated.
