Adelle is grateful to have had Nike as a kit sponsor since 2015 and CurraNZ Sport's support since 2018.

Since Adelle's running career took off she has worked as a make up artist, a model, a body double and content creator to make ends meet. Adelle is currently a non-funded athlete and always looking for sponsorship and partnership opportunities that benefit both parties and ultimately support her athletic career.

In the past, Adelle has spoken at business events, panel discussions and fund raisers, getting involved in team building days for staff members and even offering makeup advice to companies who have sponsored her. If you would like to discuss further what Adelle can offer your company, please get in touch.
