2022 Charity Partners –

This year the Spirited Women – All Women’s Adventure Race is partnering with both a Local Charity or Cause that is specific to the region that the event is held in, and a National Charity or Cause to help foster future generations of Spirited Women.

Local Charity:

Rotary River Pathways Trust

For the 2022 North Island event, the Spirited Women – All Women’s Adventure Race has formed a relationship with the Rotary River Pathways Trust, to help raise valuable funds for their cause.

The Rotary River Pathways Trust is a local Central Hawke’s Bay group of trail builders who have a big dream of building and expanding the well-known Tuki Tuki Trail. They also are strong supporters of a range of other improvement projects, like local schools, community assets, and the arboretum.

The Tuki Tuki Trail (and mountain bike trails at the Gum Tree Park) is a network of trails for walkers and bikers, situated in Central Hawkes Bay between the townships of Waipukurau & Waipawa. It offers a wide variety of trails and tracks along the beautiful Tuki Tuki river for locals and travelers of outside of the region (like you!) to enjoy the recreational use both walking & cycling of this trail. This trail has been fully supported and built by this Rotary River Pathways Trust, with many supporters along the way. 

For every $100 we contribute, 1 meter of professional built MTB trail will be laid. It’s quick and easy to donate any sum, click here to make a donation, today.


National Charity:

Sir Edmund Hillary Outdoors Education Trust (Hillary Outdoors)

In 2022 we continue our national partnership with Hillary Outdoors to help raise valuable funds for their cause.

Hillary Outdoors is a not for profit organisation run by a charitable trust that provides outdoor education primarily to young people. Hillary Outdoors’ philosophy is that all youth, regardless of their finances or ability should be able to develop through adventure. The organisation runs a series of very successful nationwide adventure-based events throughout the year. Without the generous support from sponsors and donors they would not be able to offer what is described by a wide variety of participants as a life-changing experience.  

There are multiple ways to donate, fundraise, or share for Hillary Outdoors.

  • Donate = It’s super easy to donate today through their givealittle page here or through our donation platform here.
  • Fundraise = Your team can set up a fundraising page here and fundraise as a team-leading up to the 2021 Northland event. 
  • Share = You can share their story to help raise valuable funds for their cause here.
