We ran the Mt Cook Marathon on 23rd Sep as a team, and we will continue to challenge ourselves physically and mentally through various activities, raise awareness, raise funds for the house rebuild and the team - inspire and be inspired.

Our motto is trekking with a mission, help one family and inspire one person at a time. Building a community and be a source of inspiration is all we care about.

So please follow us and like us on Facebook #ProjectEBC we also have upcoming activities for people who want to be involved.

Fergus's 3000km Te Araroa challenge   20 October 2017

Posted by: Tina Morrell, Mike Lowden, Bette (TingTing) Chen

2 weeks after Mt Cook marathon, Fergus has emarked his Te Araroa adventure.

While others at his age are partying hard out, Fergus wants to adventuring hard out, challenging himself physically and mentally. Especially with life challenges early in life, he felt these adventures make him stronger in his body, and his mind.

Don't ask for a lighter load, ask for a stronger shoulder. At #ProjectEBC, we don't like it easy~
