The Team from New Zealand Red Cross

Fun fact… it’s 537 steps up Baldwin Street in Dunedin – that means you’d have to walk up it almost 19 times to get 10,000 steps! Thanks to Hannah, our legendary Community Fundraising Coordinator for stepping up to the challenge.

We still have plenty of New Zealand Red Cross Cups to give away. All you need to do is sign up to Red Cross Journey, be one of the first 100 participants to raise $100 and we’ll send you a KeepCup!

Red Cross Journey is our annual fundraising step challenge - with a difference. Walk 10,000 steps a day for 21 days and learn about the journey of someone involved with Red Cross while raising funds to help people in need.
