TRY IT ON – Fundraising

Something amazing happens when a Kiwi kid puts on their event shirt for the first time and something even more amazing happens when they cross the finish line, arms raised, and receive their Champions finishers’ medal from one of NZ’s leading sports stars. 

It’s a feeling of excitement, independence and pride – and we want to be able to share that feeling with every Kiwi kid around the country by helping them TRY IT ON too.

So far we’ve already raised
for Kiwi Kids.

TRY IT ON fundraising programme

TRY IT ON is a fundraising programme that lets TRYathlon participants fundraise so less fortunate kids from their community can participate in a Weet-Bix™ Kids TRYathlon™ event too!

When entering the Sanitarium Weet-Bix™ Kids TRYathlon, a fundraising page for the Weet-Bix™ TRYathlon Foundation – TRY IT ON programme, will be created for each TRYathlete.

Fundraising is optional but we encourage all TRYathlete’s to get involved. 100% of funds you raise will go directly towards supporting children in and around your local community.

Children can help fundraise by committing to a personal challenge like training for the TRYathlon™, doing jobs at home and getting sponsors or simply asking for donations. It’s up to them!

100% of funds you raise will go directly towards supporting children in and around your local community.
