Tramping the entire length of New Zealand on the Te Araroa Trail to raise money for Himalayan Trust's Earthquake Rebuild Appeal

Awareness Endurance International Disasters


At the end of January we set off from Bluff, for our journey on foot to Cape Reinga. It's no walk in the park and will involve; traversing mountains, forests, cities & beaches, wading through river crossings, squelching through thick mud with our possessions on our backs, camping in a new spot every night, for days, weeks, and ultimately (5-6) months, before reaching our goal of covering the 3,000km's (around 1860miles) of the Te Araroa trail AKA 'The Long Pathway' to raise as much money as possible for Himalayan Trust's Earthquake Rebuild Appeal. All the money donated is going towards re-building classrooms, teachers quarters, student quarters and toilet blocks.

Being in Nepal during the earthquake made leaving difficult. The feeling of needing to do more to help rebuild the country was so strong. And so, an idea of a fundraiser started forming.....

All funds raised go to:

  • Himalayan Trust

    Founded in the 1960s by Sir Ed, the Himalayan Trust works to empower communities and reduce poverty in the Everest region of Nepal.
