The Great ENZED Charity Run gets underway

September 12, 2012

From August 31st until November 8th, Perry Newburn will embark upon The Great ENZED Charity Run. He’ll be running 5300km over 71 days raising awareness of mental wellness and funds for the Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand.

The event will commence in Palmerston North and circumnavigate the country. Each day of the run has been designed to give Perry, an experienced ultra-marathon runner, an achievable goal.

Members of the public are encouraged to join Perry on this epic journey. Fun Runs will be held in:

Wanganui 1st September
Wellington 10th October
New Plymouth 4th September
Christchurch 15th October
Auckland 10th September
Timaru 17th October
Whangarei 13th September
Dunedin 20th October
Tauranga 27th September
Invercargill 23rd October
Napier 6th October
Nelson 6th November

In 2011 Perry ran “Perry’s Run for Christchurch” from Auckland to Christchurch. The 1053km journey took him 15 days and raised $20,000 for the Red Cross Earthquake Relief Fund. From The Great ENZED Charity Run, Perry hopes to raise over $30,000.

ENZED Total Hose and Fitting Service, the principal sponsors of the run will be assisting Perry along the way. Shaun O’Dea, Marketing Manager for ENZED says; “For ENZED it’s a great opportunity to get behind and incredible feat of endurance and to support a great cause. With our network throughout the country we’re in a really good position to get behind Perry and help spread the message of The Mental Health Foundation”.
