Volunteering Disability Marathon

Chris Hooper is CEO of NZRDA. Originally from the UK and with a leisure and recreation management background, Chris headed up SCOUTS NZ for 5 years and Special Olympics for 10 years (first in NZ, then in the UK). Chris is a keen runner and has completed the London marathon six times. On 23 April 2017, as part of a joint initiative with RDA UK, he plans to complete the marathon once more. This time, he’s doing it to raise funds and awareness for RDA.

Chris will make his own way there and back and will stay with friends and family. Like the rest of us, Chris wants to fully maximise RDA’s potential to assist people with disabilities to overcome their challenges, achieve their goals, participate in their communities and enjoy access to therapeutic, educational and recreational activities.

Help Chris achieve his goal – to complete the London Marathon to raise funds and awareness for RDA. His goal matches the goal of RDA groups everywhere – to be able to provide more children and adults with life-changing horse-riding and horse-related opportunities and to enable more riders to increase their ability, independence and self-worth.

Use of funds:

Your support provides consistent and equal access to training, advice and resources for all RDA groups, coaches and volunteers across the country – irrespective of whether the group is small or large (or in between) or urban or suburban (or rural). Your support ensures health and safety and other standards are met – and you are making a healthy, safe and positive difference to the lives of disabled children and adults (and to the lives of their families and friends).

Page created by:

We provide high-quality training and support for each one of our 56 local RDA groups spread throughout NZ. Our vision is to provide more children and adults with life-changing horse-riding and horse-related opportunities and to enable more riders to increase their ability, independence and self-worth.

“Go Chris. Heaps of London Marathoners dress up in costumes to promote their charities. We assume you’ll be dressing up as a horse?! After all, you are raising both funds AND awareness for RDA. Can’t wait to see your costume pics from London!”
“Good luck Chris!”
“Go Chris !”
“Great work Chris, your a running and fundraising star. Hope the marathon and fundraising goes well. Catch you soon to hear how it all goes. Hope you raise some big dollars, well done.”
“I am not a runner! It's brilliant that you are doing this - the very best of luck to you!!!”
“Keep up the good work!”
“I am a keen horse woman and completive question rider. I am more than happy to donate etc.”
“Good luck with the run Chris maybe a go-pro video blog ?”
“All the best Chris for the run. Our thoughts are with you!”
“Run well Chris H.”
