On Saturday 22nd May 2021, Katie Tahere from Hopewalk Taranaki, Joseph Parker-Smith from Hopewalk Manawatū and Amber Lee from Hopewalk Christchurch will be each doing a 12hr keep moving challenge from 7am until 7pm. This is to raise awareness for mental health and suicide, and to raise funds for I AM HOPE charity (donations also accepted at https://givealittle.co.nz/fundraiser/hopewalk-12hr-challenge).

Katie will be walking for 12 hours at Tasman Prospect Park with support from Taranaki R.A.T.S (Riders Against Teen Suicide) and Tui Ora. There will be a few activities taking place during the day, including motorbike displays, live music from local youth, games. Motorbikes are welcome to enter for $5 each and the public is asked to vote throughout the day with a koha. The bike with the most votes will be presented with a trophy that has been donated by Taranaki R.A.T.S. There will spot prizes given out throughout the day so don’t forget to wear your gumboots!

If anyone else would like to be involved in supporting this event, please contact Katie 021 299 9098 or https://www.facebook.com/Hope-Walk-New-Plymouth-Taranaki-2203734583187083.
