Jack Keeys is training to run the Auckland Marathon in gumboots to raise funds for New Zealand’s Rural Support Trust network and Melanoma New Zealand. Mr Keeys has recovered from melanoma at the age of 24 last year, and wants to raise awareness about getting regular check-ups, regardless of your background or age. With his “gumboot marathon” Mr Keeys wants to support the great work that these two charities deliver for rural communities and the wider New Zealand public. Mr Keeys's charity page is here.
