Fundraise for Rānui House

When a loved one is fighting for their life,
their family and community supports them.

Rānui House cares for Kiwis with cancer and life-threatening illnesses by providing a home-away-from-home and funding cancer research to find a cure.

With the number of families in need of support growing every year, we can only continue to care for families thanks to the generosity of those who choose to make a difference.

Whether you hold a sausage sizzle, run a marathon, organise a school mufti day, or ask for donations on your birthday, there are lots of creative ways you can help support keeping families together while their loved one is in hospital away from home.

Gruelling ‘Old Forest Hanmer 100’ (160 km run)

We are a small Westport family who are wanting to give back to the most amazing charitable trust, which we did not know existed until our lives were tipped upside down. In mid Jan 2016, our growing family were fortunate enough to have the care and support of Rānui House in Christchurch.

We were waiting on the arrival of our daughter who was expected to have several difficulties once she was born. However, she amazed our specialists and needed very little intervention. Rānui House accommodated us for three weeks during this time.

Exactly two weeks later my wife was admitted back into Christchurch Hospital with life threatening PSC liver disease complications. The team at Rānui House went above and beyond to accommodate our family once again for another seven weeks. This charitable trust is used by so many families from the South Island and especially the West Coast. It helps to keep families close together at their most vulnerable times.

Our little family want to give back to Rānui House, who, during two very traumatic times in our lives, were there to house, support and nurture us.

UPDATE …. Ryan has completed this gruelling race and has raised $3,700 for the Bone Marrow Cancer Trust. Ngā mihi to Ryan & Bec and those that donated. We are simply overwhelmed by your and the community support for the Cause.
