You'll be joining runners like 6-year-old Toby, who has been clocking up the kilometres before class. Toby says he's supporting KidsCan because he doesn’t want other children to feel hungry or have no shoes.
His Mum Lou says it's a great event to be part of - he learns to train, gets to experience a race and earns his medal. And there are bigger life lessons from his fundraising too.
"We’ve talked about how his life as a kid is not experienced by all other children, and sadly there are some children who don’t get as much food as he gets each day or all the clothes we have readily available for us," she says. "It made him realise that there’s inequality in New Zealand. It’s heartbreaking to know there are children who are in the position where they are facing hardship so it just feels good to be able to do what we can to help." - Toby’s Mum
