For the eighth year running Jennian Homes is shining the light on heart health as they encourage all ages to take part in the Jennian Homes Mother’s Day Fun Run/Walk.
On Mother’s Day, runners and walkers will set off at 9am from locations all over the country, including (insert regional location) as part of New Zealand’s biggest Mother’s Day event.
Each run will start with a sea of participants wearing iconic New Zealand Artist Dick Frizzell designed t-shirts, received by every registrant as part of their registration pack.
The events are organised by local franchisees who are very much part of their communities, bringing together the community and providing the opportunity of many to honour and run for those they know who have been impacted by heart health.
As part of their commitment to the Heart Foundation Jennian capture stories and connect the Heart Foundation to walkers/runners who are participants
in honour of their loved ones. The stories highlight that number of people directly and indirectly impacted by the conditions related to heart health, age and gender does not discriminate. 186,000 New Zealanders alone are living with Heart Disease.
As registrations for this year’s event pour in, heartfelt motivations to partake have been at the forefront. Mothers with heart disease, children born with heart conditions, family members on transplant wait lists.
Young and old, far and wide the stories flow of family members who have passed or are living with conditions that the Heart Foundation work tirelessly to provide support and research to prevent to improve quality of life.
Jennian Homes has been a loyal supporter of the Heart Foundation for almost a decade. Since the Heart Foundation began, it has invested more than $70 million into heart research and specialist cardiac training. Jennian Homes has made a significant contribution to this.
“We are proud to be involved in not only helping to raise money and awareness, but also in encouraging women and their families to get fit and active,” says Jennian Homes COO Mr Jury.
“For some women, the Jennian Homes Mother’s Day Fun Run/Walk is life-changing, being the catalyst for an ongoing exercise regime. Those are the real success stories.”
Jennian Homes is proud to champion the need for better heart awareness in New Zealand and will be giving $20,000 to the Heart Foundation to support heart health following the Mother’s Day events.
Tickets start from just $15 each and there are also discounted rates for juniors and groups.
