Help Rod Carr and the UCSA raise money for the new UCSA building by donating to his give a little page as he runs the Queenstown Marathon.

On 17 November 2018 the Vice-Chancellor | Tumu Whakarae is running the Queenstown Marathon to raise funds for the new students’ association building.

Following the completion of 20 full marathons, including one on every continent, Dr Rod Carr retired from running full marathons, however he has recently decided to come out of his self-imposed running retirement to enter the 2018 Queenstown International Marathon in November, with the aim of raising funds for the UCSA building.

A message from Dr Rod Carr

For the last decade I have had the privilege to play my part in leading an extraordinary institution in extraordinary times. I have been motivated by the impact education has on people, especially younger people taking a first degree. I have been inspired by the students, their community, their clubs, their self-motivation and leadership. In supporting the student body to own and control their own place, we recognise their responsibility and reward their contribution while enabling and empowering generations of future students.

The funds will go towards the $5m fundraising campaign being organised by the University of Canterbury Students’ Association (UCSA) for their new building, the old home was damaged beyond repair in the 2011 earthquake.
