" A WALK TO REMEMBER"

Rotorua, Bay Of Plenty

Hi Team,

On April 24th 2022 we will be holding a fund raising event in honour of our fallen,

CPL Luke Tamatea.

The vehicle in which he was travelling in was hit by an IED explosive device while on deployment in Afghanistan August 19 2012, killing him and two of his fellow soldiers.

This year our whanau and extended whanau have decided April will be the time to create a fundraising event supporting ‘NO DUFF’.

So who is NO DUFF?

‘No Duff’ is a registered charity committed to providing immediate support for veterans in need.

Our plan for the day:

To honour our fallen soldiers we are going to gear up for a 14 km walk/run

'Military style’.

What does that look like?

A typical day patrol pack for our soldiers weighs approximately 25kg.

The challenge is to carry the same weight that our soldiers carried while on tour in Afghanistan.

Following The WODwell TAMA WOD

Luke was an avid CrossFit athlete and enjoyed body-weight exercises and practicing farmers carries over long distances in preparation for Special Forces selection.The rep scheme (31) is to commemorate Luke’s age when he was killed.
