We're a team of four journalists who work for The Press. Three of us are based in Christchurch and one is the intrepid West Coast reporter.

We've been called crazy, insane, idiotic, mental, deluded and masochistic, but we're hoping to prove them all wrong.

Our team is made up of  Marc 'I know every single song from Cats' Greenhill, Anna 'I used to walk home from school' Turner, Rachel 'I bullied everyone else into doing this' Young and Deidre 'I'm here to make up numbers' Mussen.

There is a high chance we will kill each other by the end of this, but we're hoping to raise some much needed moolah for Oxfam in the process.

The Press is going to match us dollar for dollar up to $2000 that we raise so thanks boss : )
