Father-and-son duo, Jack and Chris Duffy, were joined by five other wheel-chair bound children as they climbed the 21.1-kilometre incline of Mount Wellington.
Mr Duffy said he felt a surge of enormous relief as he crossed the finish line after averaging a marathon length of running every day for more than a week.
"It was a really challenging and physically exhausting effort, but thanks to all the people that have helped us along the way, Jack absolutely loved it," he said.
As of Sunday, more than $23,000 had been raised.
