For the last two years, BARK NZ has sent a team of challengers into the Waitakere Ranges to take on the Hillary Trail. At the end of 2013, the team completed the task in the recommended four days. The 2014/2015 event was fantastic; taken on in three days by six faithful BARK Brigadiers, the event raised nearly $3,000 towards the continuation of educating DogWise children in New Zealand!
In the next edition (date to be confirmed), the bar’s being raised as the team get set to complete the challenge in just two days! This will mean an average of nearly 40km of hiking each day and will certainly add to what is already an intense expedition!
More details will follow as we approach the next event, but in the meantime if you think you’d like to join us, have a fun and challenging time, as well as raise sponsorship for BARK NZ, feel free to get in touch by our Facebook page, www.facebook.com/Bark.org.nz, or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
