Organiser Murray O’Donnell says the rally is equally dependent on the communities it visits as it is the sponsors and ‘trekkers’ who donate their time and money to be involved.
“We couldn’t make it work without the communities on board. Town Mayors come out to wave us through town, local schools put on breakfasts and teams of volunteers make sure we are well looked after when we are in town. It is extremely heartwarming.”
All donations made during the week-long event go directly to Blue Light, 100% of which goes to the kids they support.
“Blue Light is about empowering youth at a community level and that can happen in many different ways. We have heard about the difference this event has made over the years in the lives of so many young people and their families and we are excited to be working with them.” New Zealand Blue Light is the new partner charity for this event.
