Auckland Marathon 2021

If you’re ready to ‘run the city’, join Team Shine

Domestic violence in New Zealand is being called the ‘shadow pandemic’.  It was one of our biggest social issues pre COVID-19, with police attending a domestic violence incident every 4 minutes.  Over the past year with COVID-19 and lockdowns, we have seen not only an increase in the number of domestic violence incidents, but even more frightening, an increase in the level of violence being used.

As kiwis, we need to stand up against domestic violence.

Be part of the solution and join Team Shine today. 

Join Team Shine for this year’s Auckland Marathon on 31st October 2021 and raise funds to support victims of domestic violence. Run or walk 5, 11km, 21km or 42km.

Set up an online fundraising page. Be part of the solution and help victims of domestic violence get safe and stay safe.

Shine's Community Fundraiser Carol Herbert signed up to Team Shine for the 2019 Auckland Marathon, to walk the half-marathon distance of 21km.

"Joining Team Shine was definitely a motivator as I wanted to use the opportunity to make a difference in my community. It motivated me to fundraise and also to train so I didn’t let down family and friends who donated to my Shine cause. It was amazing walking over the Auckland Harbour Bridge and crossing that finish line was a huge achievement. I would encourage you to give it a go this year."

Please contact Carol if you have any questions or would love to sign up. Email carolh@2shine.org.nz


“This is by no means an easy job, with the volunteers having to face very sensitive situations head on. Shine’s volunteers get a chance to make a real difference in the lives of people affected by domestic violence.”
