Tom & Mitch Te Araroa 2018/19
In September 2017 a close friend took his own life, a year later we are trying to do something positive in his memory. This September we will be starting the Te Araroa trail heading southbound across New Zealand, stretching a total distance of 3000km.
This journey will take us approximately 4-5 months to complete. In this time we plan to meet a whole range of people where we will be spreading the message for ‘the need to talk’ about the issues surrounding suicide. Here in New Zealand the suicide rate is far too high and we want to help be part of the change that the organisation Life Matters is making. Our big push is for getting people ‘talking and outside walking’, by doing this we hope people will be more aware of others who may be going through something on their own.
We have created this page to make a difference. We are inspired by the work of Life Matters Suicide Prevention Trust and want to support them by raising money. Please help us help them by giving generously.
