Walking for Disability

$4,755 donated
Given by 45 generous donors in around 7 months

Walking the length of New Zealand to raise awareness and funding for disability care and carers.


I'm walking the 3,000km length of New Zealand from Cape Reinga to Bluff on the Te Araroa Trail to raise funds for the KaraHands Charitable Trust to replace their 20 year old disability van. KaraHands is a charity that offers support for families with disabled family members. See https://karahands.co.nz for more details.

You can follow my progress via my blog at http://www.greyhiker.com/blog

Thank you.

KaraHands greatly enriched the life experience of one of my family members and supported me as a carer.
