Following Mirza and Asma's journey

My Activity Tracking


My target 230kms

What a challenge!

I knew this would be a challenge, trying to walk these distances day after day, but it is a bigger challenge than I thought! Then I remind myself of the huge challenge that Mirza and his family faced,  deciding to leave their home country with uncertainty ahead. My challenge then seems rather small.

Hello friends and family!

I have joined Red Cross Journey because I am inspired by the good work of New Zealand Red Cross. From 8-31 May I will be counting my daily steps to reach my step target. As I reach milestones in this step challenge, I will get updates on the real journey of Mirza and Asma’s family, a refugee background family whose journey includes surviving multiple gunshot wounds, fleeing Pakistan and even losing a daughter, before settling in New Zealand. The more I walk, the more of their real journey will be revealed to me.

Please support me in this challenge by making a secure donation to my fundraising page. Donate now and you too can support New Zealand Red Cross to help vulnerable people at home and overseas.

When you help me to raise money for New Zealand Red Cross, you’re contributing to the Red Cross response to disasters like the November 2016 earthquake, to community development programmes, support for former refugees, community transport, teaching life-saving skills to children, delivering Meals on Wheels and much more.

Thank you in advance for your generosity so, together we can help Red Cross support people in need in New Zealand and overseas.

Thank you to my Sponsors





Happy stepping!!
