We are neighbours who walk together.

We are from different nations and are very fortunate living in this wonderful Aotearoa, New Zealand, where resources are plentiful and easily available.

We are proud to be able to walk the 100km Oxfam Trailwalker for a better world.

Please support our team The Orange Kangas on this journey as we prepare for and participate in this challenge.
