Event Description

 

Hello and thank you for visiting my fundraising page!

My name is Mina and I have just finished running/kayaking/scrambling my way along New Zealand's Te Araroa trail. This 3,000km trail runs the length of the country, from Cape Reinga on the tip of the North Island, right down to Bluff at the very south of the South Island. The journey consisted mostly of trail, with some road sections and several water crossings. I had the immense support of both James and Adam who took it in turns to either run with me or drive the support van and carry out the many duties that were required each day to keep the momentum of the challenge going! I can't thank them enough.

I am not a professional athlete; I took up running around 8 years ago and discovered my love of trail running soon after that. I have completed several ultra-distance events including the Marathon des Sables, the Hillary trail and the Pilgrims Challenge. When I first heard about the trail I felt drawn to it and excited about the potential of such an adventure.

I committed to this challenge for so many reasons; first and foremost is the potential it gives me to raise a substantial amount of money to make a difference to the lives of children. I have a strong link with New Hope Rural Community Trust; since 2011 I have been a trustee of the charity, after spending some time in India working with the organisation in 2011. New Hope is one of the most inspiring places I have ever been lucky enough to spend time. Knowing that I can help to secure a future for the young adults New Hope care for was definitely a huge factor in getting me to keep putting one foot in front of the other, however swollen they got! I am specifically raising money to secure the future of ophaned young adults by funding their further education. For more info on where your money will go please visit my website www.runnz.org. Many thanks!
