Front UP for Hospice

Sat 2 November 2019

Smales Farm

The details for the 2019 event are still being finalised. Please see below details for last years' event to give you a feel for this wonderful event!

Thank you to everyone who supported the Front UP for Hospice challenge with Harcourts Cooper & Co, helping to raise over $29,000 for Hospice services in the North Shore community.

Congratulations goes to the ‘Two Has-beens’ (AKA Kris & Marty) who took out the overall champion title as top fundraisers and to ‘Racing for Riki’ (AKA the McDonnells) for having the top score on challenge day.

There was a ‘community’ theme running throughout challenge day as participants built a home for Hospice, house of cards and a castle on the beach. They also celebrated our diverse community by learning a dance from another culture and showed off the beautiful landscape we have here on the Shore with many photos.

More than 80% of Hospice care happens out in the community, in the place our patients call home. The funds raised through this event will assist us to deliver Hospice care into homes on the North Shore of around 700 patients and their families in the next 12 months.

Grateful thanks to our event partners Harcourts Cooper & Co, Smales Farm with Vodafone NZ, The Better NZ Trust with Auckland Transport, More Fm Auckland, Big Street Bikers and Cube design and print. Thank you also to our supporting sponsors Mitre 10 Mega Glenfield, Resene ColourShop, Ecosotre, Columbus Coffee Smales Farm, Ellice Road Hospice Shop and CuppaCoffeeCup.

Take UP the challenge to raise over $1,000 to make a difference and guarantee entry to an Amazing-Race-styled challenge trail.

Up to 4 people in your team will get in to fancy dress, to get out on the beautiful North Shore.

Courtesy of The Better NZ Trust, you have your own e-car and personal driver to move between mystery hotspots.

Cross the finish line with the most points to win the Front UP challenge day prize; fundraise the most to win the overall Front UP challenge Champion title and trophy.


Participating teams have been raising much-needed funds for patients and families on the North Shore. This means they can now enjoy their amazing-race-style challenge on Saturday 27 October. 

The teams will venture out at 10am from Vodafone's innov8 building at Smales Farm and return at the end of the day for prize-giving at 4pm.

Keep an eye out for our Dressed UP participants as they complete tasks around our beautiful North Shore community.
