2017 ASB Auckland Marathon

Join Youthline's 2017 Team this year!

After Youthline’s success in the 2015 ASB Auckland Marathon, we are returning in 2016 in an attempt to make it even bigger and better!

Would you like to support us in helping young New Zealanders? There are two ways that you can join Team Youthline in this great event. The first is as a Golden Charity Runner and the other way is by securing your own spot as a General Runner in the Auckland Marathon and then choosing to fundraise for Youthline.

Golden Charity Places for Youthline

We are looking to recruit 30 Golden Charity Runners to take part in either the Full, Half or 12km Traverse. We would love you to join the Youthline Marathon Team if you are passionate about helping young New Zealanders and this mean that we would cover the cost of your registration in return for you pledging to raise a committed amount of fundraising for Youthline.

ENTER HERE to be a Golden Runner. 

This year we plan to raise $80,000 with the help of our Golden Runners. This will see the team fund Youthline’s youth counselling helpline and text service for 4 weeks and support 2,000 young people who contact us in their time of need.

Over the last year, our flagship free 24/7 Helpline received and managed over 277,000 calls, texts and emails and it costs Youthline $800,000 a year to run this service.

We ask our Golden Charity runners to commit to a minimum fundraising target of $1,500 for each distance in return we cover the cost of your registration AND everything else below;

$1,500 which will see you fund the helpline for 16 hours and support 50 young people.
