Te Aorere will "Waewae the 35" to raise awareness around the devastating impact Cyclone Gabrielle has had on Te Tairāwhiti communities.


In February 2023, Te Tairāwhiti was hit hard by Cyclone Gabrielle. Although weeks have passed, the impact has been devastating, and relief efforts continue. Te Aorere Pēwhairangi has set himself the audacious task to walk Highway 35 from Gisborne to Hicks Bay. On his journey, he will talk to whānau at the front line of the recovery, local MP's, athletes and television personalities to raise awareness around the impact the cyclone has had on East Coast communities and Highway 35. "Mauiui whenua, mauiui tangata" - When the land is unwell, so too are the people.
