Stick to your bubble, not your couch - join Red Cross Virtual Tour

Red Cross Communications from Red Cross - Gisborne Service Centre

During COVID-19 lockdowns overseas, we've seen someone run a half marathon on a tiny balcony and the distance of Everest up and down a staircase. What will we see next in New Zealand!?

During COVID-19 lockdowns overseas, we've seen someone run a half marathon on a tiny balcony and the distance of Everest up and down a staircase. What will we see next in New Zealand!?

We are an active country and we like to get outdoors in our beautiful landscapes. But we know that right now we must #stayhomesavelives. Here is a way that you can still keep active in your own home, and still enjoy the beautiful scenery that we have here in Aotearoa! ? #RedCrossVirtualTour

Eaten too many bunny-shaped chocolates this weekend? Fed up of Netflix asking if your ‘still watching’? Or just looking for a creative way to keep active in your bubble? Well, we have an idea for you! Join the Red Cross virtual tour of Lake Taupo!

You can run, walk, yoga and even garden your way across the length of Lake Taupo (71km) from the comfort of your own bubble.

To join, you just need to make a minimum donation of $25. This donation helps fund the amazing work New Zealand Red Cross does. We are on the frontline of the COVID-19 response, with 190 of our volunteers working in their communities to respond to the COVID-19 crisis. Our Meals on Wheels and migration services have been deemed essential services and are continuing to operate throughout alert level four. And our Restoring Family Links service is supporting families who have lost contact with each other because of the pandemic. Our work supporting people in times of crisis or disasters is more relevant now than ever.

So, whether your rack up steps from running up and down your stairs, or simply walking to-and-from the fridge, have a little fun and join our virtual tour! - www.myvirtualmission.com...

Make every step count with Red Cross Journey

Red Cross is encouraging Kiwis to take a walk in someone else’s shoes this winter to support people in need.

Red Cross Journey, a new fundraising event running this May, challenges people to follow the real-life journey of a volunteer responding to a disaster or a former refugee seeking safety.

Participants have a month to walk the distance of their chosen journey while raising funds to support people in need. Along the way, they’ll learn more about disaster response or refugee resettlement in New Zealand.

Funds raised will support the work Red Cross does to help people in need in Aotearoa and around the world.

Red Cross Journey – what you need to know:

• Red Cross Journey runs from 8 May to 8 June, but registrations are now open. Head to www.redcrossjourney.org.nz... to sign up or learn more.
• Choose your journey and get walking! Follow Red Cross volunteer Kath as she responds to a disaster or get a team together to follow the Tamim family’s journey to a safer life. You’ll be walking 240kms throughout the month.
• Use an app on your smartphone to measure the steps you’ve walked during the day and enter your total on your Red Cross Journey page. If you don’t have a smartphone, you can calculate the kilometres you’ve walked and enter this distance instead.
• Red Cross Journey is accessible to everyone. If you are less able to walk, you can do the journey in the usual way you get around (apart from driving).
• Red Cross works right across New Zealand – responding to disasters like the Kaikoura earthquake, supporting former refugees, delivering Meals on Wheels, teaching first aid to children and so much more! By raising money through Red Cross Journey, you’ll be helping Red Cross do good things in your community.
