Colliers International New Zealand is a proud partner of Cure Kids, enabling high-impact medical research to find the cures our children need.
Our relationship with Cure Kids commenced in 2005, when we took on the challenge of becoming a Key Partner, committing to raise $100,000 each year. We have maintained that partner status since then and have met or exceeded that target every year, raising in excess of $1.5 million to date.
Since partnering with Cure Kids, we have participated in a range of fundraising activities, both Cure Kids events and our own events that we have used as fundraising vehicles with clients and staff such as 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.
“We are thrilled to have Colliers International supporting Cure Kids who really get behind our vision of giving all New Zealand children the best chance of a healthy start in life. Our partnership with Colliers International is critical for us to be able to fund research and what’s wonderful is that together we can make a real impact on child health” Frances Benge, CEO Cure Kids.
