Baden Ngan Kee.

Simplot launched their support for Baden Ngan Kee via Team Baden – an initiative where they’ll be using the John West 12K Traverse event at the Auckland Marathon (run/walk over the Harbour Bridge) on Sunday 29th October 2017 to support Baden’s fundraising for the Lung Foundation.

Spring has arrived, and there are a few weeks to go to get ready for the event – more than enough time to prepare to run or at least walk the event. Baden, Kath and the children will be doing just that, and it’s a great opportunity for the grocery sector to show their support for Baden and his family by doing the same.


You can share the details below with your team, colleagues, friends and family plus a simple ‘how to’ guide for entering the event and signing up to join the fundraising with Team Baden

Look out also for the upcoming social media campaign as a fun and interactive way to drive awareness for the Lung Foundation and support the fundraising drive.

Simplot will also be donating additional prizes to the Lung Foundation on behalf of:

1)      The biggest team entered

2)      The team with the fastest 3 runners in the John West 12K Traverse

3)      The team that raises the most money.

Join the Simplot team after the race at the John West marque at Victoria Park where Baden will present a cheque for the funds raised to the Lung Foundation, and there will be games and activities for all to enjoy.

Baden is passionate about generating awareness and advocacy for the Lung Foundation, which is a non-government organisation dedicated to promoting healthy lungs and early detection of lung disease.

Did you know that Lung cancer is New Zealand’s biggest cancer killer – Five kiwis every day die of lung cancer and more people die of lung cancer, than of breast cancer, prostate cancer and melanoma combined.
