We want to raise money for the Gifts For Kids charity and The Sweet Louise Charity
Last year, Joshua Lewthwaite and Ollie Such decided to walk 100km with absolutely no training to help raise funds for the Gifts For Kids charity and the Sweet Louise Incurable Cancer charity. They did it under 24 hours. This helped the the Gifts For Kids charity deliver over 1400 presents to young kids in NZ last year.
This year, they're stepping it up a notch and walking 120km in less than 30 hours on Saturday, February 29th.
Gifts for Kids provides Christmas gifts to children who wouldn't otherwise have a single present to open on Christmas day. Most importantly, these children wouldn't otherwise get to experience the special magic of Christmas.
Joshua's mother was unfortunately diagnosed with an incurable cancer. The Sweet Louise charity specialise in helping people with incurable cancer to make life the best possible for them and their families. Through this experience Joshua has seen first hand the impact they make through these challenging times and would love to enable them to help other families going through the same experience.
