A team of 13 decided to take on the New York Marathon 2009. It was not an easy decision to make and would involve hours of training and a
commitment to fundraising from each team member. Everyone paid their own way fully, but agreed to raise funds for Mercy Hospice Auckland.
"We all decided to run the marathon as a tribute to people we've lost but will never forget. The race was tough – but knowing what we know and
having met the people we have, we knew that in the scheme of things it was a small battle. We ran by choice for people who have
had experiences that were not their choice. We ran for people who have left us with an enormous sense of value and appreciation for the life we have."
Jan Nichols, Former Mercy Hospice Auckland CEO.
'Team Mercy' raised an amazing $75,000 for Mercy Hospice Auckland which will go towards education scholarships for hospice staff.
