2020 - Te Araroa Trek by Mike Larcombe

Mike Larcombe will be walking Te Araroa to raise funds for Gift of Sight paediatric research being undertaken in our laboratories and also for the support group Nystagmus Network.

Please see feature about him in the Daily Echo.

He is currently aiming to commence his adventure on Monday 16th December 2019, hiking his way across both New Zealand's islands, South and North, with the occasional kayak where required (and to mix things up a bit). He has been training hard and hopes to complete the 3,000 km (1,865 mile) distance from Bluff to Cape Rainga in 5 months. Mike will keep us updated along the way through his fabulous website.
