Hey neighbours,
Halloween is fast approaching. Some Kiwis think it's great fun and go all out with decorations and lollies. Others just want to shut their doors and be left alone, leave it to the Americans.

Do you celebrate Halloween at your house? Why or why not?
And If you don't like trick or treating, how do you make it clear your house is a no-go zone?

Hi neighbours - I'm Rémy, one of thirteen young adults about to take on the challenge of our lifetimes! We're each climbing up Mount Maunganui 38 times in 38 hours (the vertical equivalent of Mount Everest!).

Our objective is simple: raise at least $10,000 for the CatWalk Trust, a charity dedicated to finding a cure for spinal cord injury. We will push the limits of what we can do on our own feet, so that someday more people will be able to get back on theirs.

We would love your support! You can donate directly here, and stay up to date with our progress by following @ThirtyEightin38 on Facebook and Instagram.
