The 321 Challenge

$100 of $3,210 goal
Given by 6 generous donors in around 11 months

In 2016 I'm completing 321km over 321 days in memory of the 321 people killed on NZ roads in 2015.


Last year 321 people were killed on NZ roads (based on provisional stats Jan 2016). To raise awareness of the devastating impact road crashes have on families, and the rights of those families to have access to immediate and appropriate information and support, I'm completing the 321 Challenge.

I'll travel 321km over 321 days.

I'll do this through a mix of organised run events and ad hoc runs around local areas, places I'm visiting, or just on the treadmill.

Note, final stats from 2015 confirmed 319 people died on NZ roads, but I'm continuing with the 321km.

Caroline Perry's involvement (page creator)

I'm undertaking this challenge because I believe that no death on the road is acceptable. Road crashes are not accidents, they are preventable. There are gaps in the support that is available to bereaved families, and families have rights to that support.

By completing this challenge I aim to raise awareness and of course raise funds for Brake to help the charity's work preventing road deaths and injuries and providing free support to bereaved families.

(With any luck I might also raise my own level of fitness and get out and enjoy the great outdoors more!).

My nephew was one of the 321. We miss him so much. If only we could change the past. Another driver fell asleep, crossed the line and killed Fin. Maybe you could change the future. Thank you for not forgetting them
