Second Sundays: Wild Wild Walks

Auckland

Second Sundays are a way for Sticks & Stones to give back to the community. These events are created for you and your whanau and freinds to spend some quality time together while getting active, trying something new and ultimately having fun!

WILD WILD WALKS
As the days become a little warmer heading into summer it only makes sense to head out for a hike in the Waitakere Ranges for this month's Second Sundays! Join our commuinty of adventurers on this beautiful walk in Goldie Bush, be prepared to get your feet wet and take a leap of faith into the waterhole!

ABOUT THE TRACK
The Mokoroa Loop Track will take approximately four hours to complete with a break for lunch. Please allow for a maximum of five hours for this track. Duration: 10km | 4.5 hours. Suitable for: People with a good level of fitness. Footwear required: Light tramping/hiking boots or sturdy sneakers. Track is mostly well formed, some sections may be rough, muddy or steep. Expect a number of unformed stream crossings.

COST
This event is being run for FREE for you, we do ask for a koha/donation to raise funds for our Charity of Choice of this month.

CHARITY OF CHOICE
Each month Sticks & Stones nominates a Charity of Choice to raise funds for from Second Sundays. All profit is donated to the selected worthy cause at the end of each month. This year, Mental Health Awareness Week (MHAW) will be held from 9–15 October (World Mental Health Day falls on 10 October, 2017). The theme for MHAW 2017 is: Nature is Key. Sticks & Stones strongly believes in the benefits of keeping active and spending time with mother nature to improve your mental health and therefore we have selected the Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand as this month's Charity of Choice!

100% of the proceeds from this event will be going to support the work the Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand provide in supporting Kiwis' mental health.
