Inbox: Keeping kids on track

Business leaders are invited to lace up their walking shoes, grab water bottle and join New Zealanders from all walks of life for the Big Walk 2012. This is the Foundation for Youth Development’s (FYD) major annual event in which it aims to raise funds for the youth programmes that it runs throughout the year.
Big Walk participants can join groups in six locations around New Zealand: at Mt Maunganui and Wellington on Saturday 31 March, and Auckland, Coromandel, Hamilton and Christchurch on Sunday 1 April. They can choose to do two, five or 10 kilometre walk in some of New Zealand’s most beautiful spots. All proceeds from The Big Walk will help raise funds for FYD’s proven youth programmes.
“We’re hoping all New Zealanders will get involved in our Big Walk event – either by participating in their local region or making donation to support our cause,” says FYD co-founder and mountaineer Graeme Dingle.
“We work with over 17,500 young people every year, developing motivation, self-belief and optimism in the future. We know many more youngsters could benefit from our programmes and we are driving our fundraising efforts towards this. We’d love all Kiwis to get behind us.”
FYD programmes use the great outdoors, inspirational classroom leaders and world-class mentors to help kids from age five to 18 keep on track, develop confidence and self-belief, and create goals for the future.
Cost to take part in the Big Walk: $5 for students, $10 for adults or $20 for the whole family. More information: www.fyd.org.nz.
