2nd Annual Hike for Hospice to raise money for Mary Potter Hospice in Wellington

Up Mt Kau Kau; meet at Khandallah Park, by children’s play area, Woodmancote Road, Khandallah. A sponsored scenic walk up Mt Kau Kau, with a chance for reflection at the summit. A wonderful way to walk and raise funds for Mary Potter.

Registration and sponsorship:
Registrations on the day: 9.15am – 9.45am. Hike starts at 10am. You need to pre-register for the event. Go to Dash Tickets to pre-register and for more information. Registration fee includes a free Sistema Drink bottle for each paid registrant:

Sponsorship:
This event is loaded on Fundraiseonline. You can register and set up your own fundraising page by going to the following link. Friends and family can sponsor you online to complete the hike. All proceeds to Mary Potter Hospice.

The return walk is 6ks. The walk to the summit of Mt Kau Kau is steep in parts (a few steps) and the walk is likely to take 30 minutes for fitter people and 45 minutes for those less fit.

At the top there will be a short remembrance ceremony led by a Mary Potter Hospice Spiritual Carer and we encourage people to bring something for lunch. The walk down may take 15 to 30 minutes – depending on fitness.

Combine raising funds for the Hospice with a walk to the summit of Mt Kau Kau and sweeping views of the harbour, the Rimutaka ranges and the hills around Wellington. On a good day you will see the South Island.

The aim of the hike is to raise funds for the Hospice and remember a loved one. And for those that want to make a day of it, the park has many excellent picnic spots including a swimming pool, children’s playground and cafe.

Summit for someone:
Whilst this is an opportunity to reach the summit for someone and raise money for the Hospice, it isn’t limited to those whose friends or family members have used Hospice services. The hike is for anyone who wants to raise funds for the Hospice and enjoy an iconic Wellington walk.

If you are summiting for someone – why not invite others that knew your loved one as well, to join you and fundraise for the hospice.
