Hi! I'm Taryn van Meygaarden from Healthy on the Run. This year I am taking part in 4 official half marathon running events:
1. Rotorua Marathon (half marathon event) - 5th May - completed finish mat time 2:34:47
2. Mount Runners - 3rd June - completed official time 2:22:53
3. Auckland Women's - 1st July - completed finish time 2:08:41
4. Hamilton Half - 30th September
I am running for myself and also to raise money for The Breast Cancer Foundation New Zealand.
I have family members and friends who have had breast cancer. I look at my amazing children and it breaks my heart to think about them growing up without a mum or having to cope with a very sick mum.
Self examinaton is a key part of early detection: https://www.breastcancerfoundation.org.nz/resources/breast-health-videos
Eight women a day are diagnosed with breast cancer in New Zealand. The money I raise from this page will be used to fund vital research projects and medical grants to help improve the survivorship of breast cancer in New Zealand. It will also help support New Zealand women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer through services such as counselling and rehabilitation programmes.
Please consider making a donation today, anything will help. Together we can make a difference.
