Last year the images of the Syrian families fleeing their homes and the desperation in their faces prompted me to run 400kms and 3 half marathons to raise much needed funds for the NZ Red Cross and their work in helping resettle displaced families here in NZ.
A year on and unfortunately the refugee crisis globally is as bad as it has ever been and organisations like the Red Cross need our help more than ever.
My own family came to NZ as refugees and so I feel an obligation to continue to help even when it feels like the worlds problems are just too big and too insurmountable.
Then I realise the alternative, the not doing anything... that's even worse than not trying at all.
That's why I've set up this page, to try and make a difference however small and insignificant it may seem, I'm hoping you'll help me with this with a small action of your own.
