Jammies in June Fun-Run

Sunday 16 June 2024 | Karaka Harbourside Playground

The Cause

As a business we have partnered with the Middlemore Foundation for the 9th consecutive year to change the odds in South Auckland and help children in disadvantaged communities thrive. Giving children the gift of warmth with a new pair of winter pyjamas is the highlight of the year for our team. Damp housing contributes to sickness in our local community and we are helping families fight preventable illnesses such as rheumatic fever and respiratory diseases that see young people admitted to Middlemore KidzFirst Hospital during the colder months of the year. Thousands of kids don’t have warm pyjamas to wear in winter. Together, we can change that. Our two offices serve as drop-off locations for anyone wanting to get involved.

About the Event

Put your PJ’s on and join us for a leisurely walk or run around the scenic 2km or 5km loop starting and finishing at the Karaka Harbourside Playground. Local Karaka families, schools and businesses are all welcome. Even the family dog is invited! Plenty of fun for all ages. Lots of giveaways, prizes for the first 3 across the finish line, spot prizes for the best dressed etc. There will be a coffee cart and sausage sizzle on site. BYO water bottle. Entry is either a gold coin donation or a new pair of kids winter PJ’s. All proceeds go to Jammies in June.
