The three weeks I (Madeleine Whittaker) spent at Outward Bound in January 2018 changed my life. I arrived at Outward Bound with very little self-confidence and emerged an adventurer!
From mid-November 2018 until mid-late January 2019 Jackie Hazelhurst and I will be walking the South Island section of the the Te Araroa Trail, with some of the Southland section substituted for backcountry in the Olivine Wilderness Area and Mt. Aspiring National Park. This entails 75 days and thousands of kilometres of glorious adventure, proving to oursevles every single day that we can go further than we ever imagined. On this journey, we will be raising money for the Outward Bound Trust, to give others the opportunity to embark on a life-changing Outward Bound course and become adventurers – a generation that wakes up with a purpose, and passionately cares for the land in which we live.
Help us empower others to do something bold, something powerful and something that makes a change for the better in our world.
