Curly runs NZ and Oz to raise funds for hungry school kids


Hi I'm Curly

I am a crazy Ultra Runner and adventurer on a self-powered personal mission.

My plan is to run from Stewart Island/Rakiura to Cape Reinga (length of New Zealand) and then from Tasmania to Darwin via the Stuart Highway (bottom to top of Australia) to raise funds for community-based groups who supply lunches to schools.

Kids struggle to learn on an empty tummy, just as I do struggle to run on an empty tummy.

In fact, when kids are hungry... they're starving!

I will keep running and adventuring until I have raised $5,000,000.

I'm not personally involved with any specific groups, my goal is to raise funds for community groups that are in need of extra funds for feeding hungry school kids
