This is a wonderful opportunity to jointly collaborate on a cause that will make a small but meaningful contribution to New Zealand Spinal Trust.In association with NZST, Phillip Roth is undertaking the Motatapu Ultra Run – 51km’s!! He has decided to use this opportunity to support the trust and would really appreciate your support for this great cause and would be grateful if you could share this with your friends, family and contacts so we can raise at least $7000.
