Volunteer Tramping 1200km to Raise Funds for Sea Shepherd

Whale Trail – Volunteer Tramping 1200km to Raise Funds for Sea Shepherd!!


New Zealand Volunteer Andrew Glennie is attempting a month long unsupported solo tramp down the South Island leg of the Te Araroa trail, covering roughly 1200km to raise funds for Sea Shepherd. Starting 1st March Andrew will be trying to make it all the way to Bluff! We’ll be giving updates on his progress.

Andrew says “I’m an avid runner and tramper and to complete the Te Araroa trail has been something on my mind for a long time. So by attempting the most epic tramp of my life hopefully I can create a bit of awareness for Sea Shepherd along the way and raise a few donations to help them carry on the great work they are doing”

Andrew’s progress can be monitored via his Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/tatwhaletrail. He has just completed the 71km Queen Charlotte track in a day and a half!

A fundraising page has been created on Givealittle: http://givealittle.co.nz/fundraiser/whaletrail

ENDS.
