Fundraise for Ranui House

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

Ranui 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.

Our Fundraisers

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 Ranui House 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. Ranui House accommodated us for 3 weeks during this time.

Exactly 2 weeks later my wife was admitted back into Christchurch Hospital with life threatening PSC liver disease complications. The staff at Ranui House went above and beyond to accommodate our family once again for another 7 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 Ranui 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 Trust. Nga mihi to Ryan & Bec and those that donated. We are simply overwhelmed by your support for the cause.

Our Fundraisers
