Join me in my Te Araroa Journey

The Graeme Dingle Foundation inspires youth of New Zealand. It has inspired me to walk the length of New Zealand along the Te Araroa.


The Graeme Dingle Foundation inspires youth of New Zealand to improve their lives by setting goals and aspirations for their futures. It takes young people on journeys that are life changing.

My father survived a Death March towards the end of WW2, after a gruelling 100 day march across Poland in the winter, starving and freezing cold. His story inspired me to test my fortitude to walk the length of New Zealand.

When I am out in the wilderness with young people, I reach a state of excitement and the problems of everyday life just drop away. I live in the moment and enjoy the amazing bush, rivers and countryside that New Zealand has to offer. I exist happily with what is on my back, without a house, kitchen or garden that I take for granted at home.

The Graeme Dingle Foundation brings about a better life for anyone who comes into contact with them. Dedicated people work in our communities helping our future generation in these programmes; Kiwi Can, Stars, Career Navigator, Project K and MYND.
