Sponsor Love

An adventure like Te Araroa isn’t possible without the support of lots of people. I want to hug all these fabulous folk for believing in a guy who wants to walk and meet his fellow Scouts…

Mega Advertising were the creative geniuses behind this blog and the first to say “What a fantastic project!”

MapWorld gave me a GME Accusat GPS emergency locator beacon, freshmap digital mapping software and a great price on a Garmin GPS.

Pacerpole sent me two pairs of their biomechanically designed walking poles all the way from the UK!

Invercargill’s Southern Adventure doesn’t even have a website, yet they enthusiastically provided me an Aarn Design Natural Balance bodypack.

Earth Sea Sky were legendary in their advice on clothing, generous with their discount and threw in a merino beanie and silk-weight tee… all designed and made in good ol’ NZ.

Tightlines in Napier have powered me up, supplying a powermonkey-eXplorer portable solar charger.

Podamo looked after my feet (I’m still smiling from my first foot massage) and provided a pair of Formthotics Shock Stop insoles.

The New Zealand Sock Company also have my feet at heart, supplying four pairs of their amazingly designed (and comfortable) LifeSocks.

Jennifer Manson is donating $1 from the sale of each of her ‘Tasha Stuart Interviews…’ novels.

Jack Link’s will keep my tummy rumbles at bay by providing their delicious beef jerky and steak bars.

Icebreaker provided a merino GT Velocity Crew tee and 3 pair of Hike Lite Crew socks, plus a discount on their current catalogue.

Aarn Design wanted me to sleep soundly on the trail, so discounted their Pacer1 tent.

Back Country Cuisine is supplying their tasty tucker at a really good price.


[Just to be super-clear, these people and companies are supporting my walk of Te Araroa and thus MyAdventurePlus. They don’t have a direct connection with SCOUTS New Zealand. And any donations via the ‘Donate’ button at the top of this page go to me, Stuart Fleming, for use during the trek.]

That said, if you would like to enquire about how you can support SCOUTS directly (yes, achieving sustainable funding is a very high priority for our National Office!) then please contact National Fundraising Manager, Tony Hickmore on +64 (0)4 495 8675 or tony@scouts.org.nz. Thanks! 🙂
