The Web Genius Kāpiti Run for Youth is on-track to deliver another super fun event on the beautiful Kāpiti coastline, Sunday 17th March 2024.

So far more than 230 people registered to participate as an individual or group to raise funds and fitness for rangatahi youth in Kāpiti.  Online sponsorship is humming and so far, oragnisers have raised $18,350 from 63 local business sponsors. 

When participants register, they choose a Fundraising Partner to support.  This means all the funds they raise in partnership are split 70% to the official Fundraising Partner and 30% is retained by the event to pay for promotion and running the event.  There are thirteen Fundraising Partners this year, including: Birthright Kāpiti, Challenge for Change Kāpiti, Kāpiti Basketball Association, Kāpiti College, Kāpiti Kindness Trust, Kāpiti Youth Support, No 49 Squadron Air Cadets Kāpiti, Ōtaki College, Paraparaumu College, The Shed Project Kāpiti, Whirlwind Kāpiti, Work Ready Kāpiti and ZEAL Kāpiti.

It’s not too late to register, simply go online and create a profile, and don’t forget to load a nice photo of yourself.  We also encourage you to share your profile online to seek sponsorship for your efforts and your chosen Fundraising Partner.  There is no entry fee to register as the sponsorship model works well and we encourage everyone to raise $20 or more.  All entrants receive regular campaigns, so they are ready for the day.  There are four options to choose from when registering: 12 or 6km walk or the 12 or 6km run.  Registration is from 8.30am to 9.45am with all walkers and runners starting together at 10am after a briefing.  Head over to our website to register >> https://www.kapitirunforyouth.co.nz/register-
