In New Zealand Colliers International is a proud partner of Cure Kids, enabling high-impact medical research to find the cures our children need.
Since joining in partnership with Cure Kids, Colliers has raised over 1.5 million dollars through charity events like golf days, fishing competitions, quiz nights, and the coveted Latitude Lunch in Queenstown.
Formed in 1971, Cure Kids has funded more than $40 million of research, which has enabled vast improvements in the health of children – extending, improving and saving the lives of kids both here and around the world.
Cure Kids are the only charity in New Zealand that funds research across a broad spectrum of child health. They have funded, or are currently funding, research investigating better treatments and cures for inherited heart conditions, cystic fibrosis, childhood cancers, sudden unexpected death in infancy (SUDI), stillbirth, burns, and child and adolescent mental health, among many others.
Thousands of children and their families are living well, because of life-saving research funded through Cure Kids. The reality remains however, that there is still so much work to be done, to address alarming health statistics affecting our young people.

Colliers International Charity Golf Day 2016
Colliers International’s annual golf day last year raised a record breaking $45,000 for its chosen charity Cure Kids.
The event known as The Blair Hargrave Memorial Golf Day
was again held at Whitford Park Golf course providing a stunning setting for the 33 four person teams. The format was Ambrose, the weather was hot, the rules were blurred, and the winner on the day…. was Cure Kids.
Since partnering with Cure Kids, Colliers has raised well over a million dollars through charity events.
The Colliers golf day was set up eleven years ago in honour of the late Blair Hargrave, one of the company’s longest serving staff members, who was instrumental in establishing Colliers relationship with Cure Kids.
