Following Donna, Red Cross nurse

The life of a dog!

Need any inspiration to get to 10,000 steps a day in September? 

Maybe you should take some tips from my dog Moses (pictured with his fav toy Duckie!) who clocked an impressive 8,500 steps all before 10am on Saturday through: chasing the cats around the house, jumping into the duck pond for an impromptu swim and eating someone else's muffin in a cafe. 


Thank you friends, family and supporters!

Awesome work team! We've already raised $270 and it's not even the start of Septemeber! 

That's enough money to provide 500 people with hot drinks in a time of disaster + a tarpauline for a family. 

Thank you to everyone who has been so generous in supporting us so far and we hope you can enjoy this journey with us, every little bit counts!  

Welcome to our Auckland Service Center team page!

Kia ora friends and whanau!

So… believe it or not we have somehow committed ourselves to a step challenge. Yes! That’s right. Along with my team, I’ll be walking 10,000 steps a day for 21 days in September because of my aroha for New Zealand Red Cross and the amazing things they do.

We need your help!

As you may already know, New Zealand Red Cross are legends – they provide relief to Kiwis affected by disaster, deploy specialist delegates overseas, and help former refugee families settle here in Aotearoa. So, you can feel super proud about donating $20 to help Red Cross (and help me reach my goal!).

By donating to Red Cross Journey, you will help to make a difference in the community. You will be helping…

  • Our disaster response teams support people in Christchurch affected by the March 15 attacks; and in Nelson during the devastating fires; and in Christchurch after that frightening gas explosion just the other week.
  • Settle former refugees into life in New Zealand.
  • People get Meals on Wheels delivered to their door and taken to medical appointments.
  • Our highly-skilled international delegates work in areas of conflict and disaster around the world.

Red Cross does so much in New Zealand and overseas, thanks to people like you. 

Not only will I be getting fit (and potentially obsessed with my step count!) during this step challenge, I’ll be learning about the incredible real-life journey of Donna, a Red Cross nurse who has worked all over the world to help people affected by conflict and disaster. She has seen immense pain and suffering, but also joy in the people she has helped along her journey.

The more I step, the more I’ll learn about Donna’s journey – great idea huh?? This is a step challenge with a difference.

Convinced? High five! Simply click on the link below and donate $20 (or more!) because you love me (and New Zealand Red Cross).
