Kimi Worrell Legacy Fund
Help prevent another avoidable deathAuckland
Lauren Kimiyo Worrell was a 28 year old American living in Auckland. She'd just finished her masters degree from UoA getting an A+ on her thesis 'New Directions for Sustainable Transport Policy in Auckland', an area which she intended on working in. She was an avid outdoors enthusiast and rockclimber.
Kimi passed away at Castle Rock in the Coromandel on the 19th of August in an accident that caused her to fall 120m to the forest floor.
Use of funds
This page is to raise a legacy fund in Kimi's name, the proceeds of which will be placed in a trust. The interest of this trust will be used exclusively to replace existing fixed lines and hardware in climbing areas around Nz from this day on.
Thank you so much to everyone for your continuing support, we are so appreciative. The Kimi Worrell Foundation has now officially been incorporated with Charities NZ as a registered charity. We have changed the Givealittle payee so that all funds will now go directly to the Kimi Worrell Foundation bank account.
With the combination of your donations, the money raised from the Extreme Edge Everest in A Day fundraiser, and an additional $5000 donated by the Macpac Fund for Good, we now have almost $28,000 that we will use to improve climbing safety in New Zealand. Thank you again for your donations and support.
