Planning is underway so note your calendar now to be part of the Web Genius Kapiti Run for Youth (KR4Y) to raise funds and fitness for Kapiti’s youth while having great fun.

Make a start today to get your team together to be part of a wonderful event so we can raise as much money as we can collectively.

KR4Y has raised more than $75,000 for the youth of Kapiti since inception in 2011. In 2016, the event raised $12,257.50. KR4Y was created by Web Genius and is their way as a local business to ‘give back’ to their community.

KR4Y is open for registration and is seeking all individuals and groups (businesses, schools, teams, clubs, organisations etc) to walk or run the beautiful Kapiti coastline course from Paraparaumu Beach to Raumati Beach and back. For those choosing the 12km walk or run, they will do two circuits of the course.

There are four great options to choose from:
- 12 km walk – registration 9:30am, start 10am
- 6km walk & 12km run – registration 10am, start 11am
- 6km run – registration 11am, start 11:30am

Set-up your profile online and then let your family, friends and work mates know so they can sponsor your efforts. There is a $20 qualifying fee that can be raised through sponsorship and all entrants will receive regular campaigns to motivate your sponsorship efforts along the way.

Go to the website to register or sponsor someone. All registrations and sponsorship are handled securely and confidentially on the KR4Y website.

Business sponsorship (Gold $500, Silver $250, Bronze $125) is also available which works for many businesses who want to support the underlying work of this event and the youth of Kapiti. In 2016, we achieved 27 local business sponsorships which can be viewed on the KR4Y website.

Our fundraising model works on the 70/30 rule which means, 70% is donated to participating Fundraising Partners and 30% is retained to cover expenses of the event. To be a registered Fundraising Partner you need to be working in the ‘youth space’ in Kapiti — more detail and to register as a Fundraising Partner go to the KR4Y website.

All funds raised by each Fundraising Partner will be distributed 70% back to the Fundraising Partner and 30% to the event to cover expenses. When participants register to participate in KR4Y they choose a Fundraising Partner which means the money they raise will be donated using the 70/30 model.
