Climb 4 Youth 2023

Support Climbers who will push themselves out of their comfort zone and experience discomfort that many young people feel every day.

Our Climbers will tackle the Hakarimata Northern Kauri Loop track as many times as they can in a 4 hour period – all while trying to achieve their fundraising goal through Givealittle. At 1,500 steps and 3kms per lap, Climbers will be proving that what they have inside them is greater than the obstacle they face.

All funds raised will support the mahi that the Graeme Dingle Foundation does with tamariki and rangatahi across the Waikato. This means helping us to continue delivering action packed value-based programmes that are sequenced to create a positive vehicle for change in young people aged 5 to 18 years old.

More Details:

Continuing straight they continue climbing steps past Nīkau palms to the Upper Lookout with excellent views of Huntly and the north Waikato lakes.  Then, return through the stunning Kauri Loop Track, which is past one of the largest kauri trees in the Waikato (estimated to be over a thousand years old).  Re-join the track at the junction and return down the steps to the car park.  Repeating this as many times as Climbers can in 4 hours!

Fundraising: Climbers and have set up Givealittle pages to help them achieve their fundraising goals! Support our Climbers – please give generously here.
