A long wander for the Stroke Foundation
Walking the length of New Zealand along the Te Araroa trail to raise funds and awareness of the Stroke FoundationTaranaki
Starting in October 2019, I am planning to walk the Te Araroa trail from the very top to the very bottom of New Zealand in the name of the Stroke Foundation. This journey is just over 3000km long and will take in some of New Zealand's toughest terrain
My family has been very personally affected by Stroke, It is a devastating medical event that can be very difficult to treat and rehab from and affects a wide range of people in different ways. Therefore I wish to use this personal challenge of mine to raise funds for the Stroke Foundation and awareness of Stroke.
I'll be posting photos and updates of my journey on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/marchant24/

Stroke has personally affected my family in a number of ways. It is indiscriminate and can effect people in so many different ways

Unfortunately when Aotearoa went into COVID lockdown I had to call pause on my journey in Kinloch, about 350km short of Bluff. I'm pretty gutted to not be able finish this summer but it's a really minor sacrifice compared to what many people are experiencing through this crisis. Plus I'm 100% going to finish this thing off eventually.
Thanks to everyone who has supported me and the @strokefoundationnz in a multitude of ways throughout this journey. The donations on this page have truely exceeded my expectations and I'm humbled by how kind and helpful people have been. It's been great to meet a bunch of amazing people walking the trail and I hope our journeys cross paths again soon.
Stay safe and well friends,
Peace, love and mung beans
