Hike For Health – ready to conquer the Great Wall of China for dementia?
- By Dementia Auckland
Have you ever dreamed of conquering the Great Wall of China? Of exploring Beijing’s Forbidden City and the Temple of Heaven? Of travelling through history to the very heart of China’s ancient culture?
Now's your chance.
The Hike for Health brings together supporters from various New Zealand and Australian health and medical research organisations for an adventure trek to the Great Wall of China. A year from now, you could be part of an incredible team, raising awareness and funds for Dementia Auckland. You’ll stand united, as a team, atop the Great Wall, knowing the difference you’ve made.
Starting in Beijing, you’ll quickly swap the hustle and bustle of the city for the majesty of the Great Wall. You will challenge yourself like never before as you trek on remote and unrestored paths, between mountains, through local villages and across rolling farmlands. With the support of our expert guides, you’ll explore the many facets of the Great Wall, deciphering the ancient stories and poems etched into its watchtowers, every brick seeming to tell a story of war and adventure.
Best of all, you will be raising funds for Dementia Auckland to ensure all people in Auckland affected by dementia receive the support they need to make the most of every day.
