24-hour Walk Steps Out for Local Communities


24-hour Walk Steps Out for Local Communities


Hubbards Head 2 Head Walk registrations now open

• 24-hour 125km charity walk around the Manukau Harbour open for entries
• Local primary schools and community projects set to benefit
• ‘Neighbours helping neighbours’ philosophy behind one-of-a-kind challenge

Auckland’s first and only 24 hour charity walk, Hubbards Head 2 Head, will see up to 250 people take on the 125km challenge around the Manukau Harbour in early November in support of local community projects.

In contrast to similar charity walks, Hubbards Head 2 Head has been created to enable local people to help those in their own communities fulfil projects that will enrich the lives of young residents in Auckland. All funds raised through Hubbards Head 2 Head are used to support a range of organisations in need across the Auckland region – from primary school projects to hospital foundations and community initiatives.

The five legs (25km each) of the walk will be tackled by one member from teams of five in a relay format, kicking off in Orua Bay atop Awhitu Peninsula on the south side of the Manukau Heads and finishing 24 hours and 125km later at Huia in the Waitakere Ranges.

Paul Dickson, founder of Hubbards Head 2 Head Walk says the event provides a valuable opportunity for people from across Auckland to do their bit and take part in a challenge that is giving back where it matters most – in their own backyard.

“Hubbards Head 2 Head is a big walk making a big difference. The impact just 24 hours of effort can have on the lives of people in your neighbourhood, your local hospital or school is truly immeasurable.”

“We’re delighted to have Hubbards on board as our principal sponsor, a local organisation who are equally dedicated to making a difference in our community.”
Hubbards Head 2 Head Walk takes place on Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 November 2014.

Registrations for the Hubbards Head 2 Head Walk are now open and numbers are limited so jump online to www.head2headwalk.com today.
