Kilimanjaro – Your Way

Mark off your kilometres on this tracking card as you take on the challenge to ‘climb’ Mt Kilimanjaro – then send it back to us to be in the draw to win a giant hamper of outdoor goodies.

Just $10 per card – what are you waiting for?

“Now you can take on the Mt Kilimanjaro challenge too. Set yourself the goal, have some fun, and join me in raising funds for Lake Taupo Hospice. Thank you for joining me on this amazing journey.” Debra

How this works!

  • You can complete this challenge in any way or mix of ways you want—run, walk, swim, cycle, ski etc – just get creative! Do it all in one go or in bits—however you choose.
  • Mark off the kilometres on your card as you go and once you have completed them all either drop the card off at the Taupo or Turangi Hospice Shop, send it to POBox 950, Taupo or scan it and email it to fundraising@laketaupohospice.co.nz—to go into the prize draw.
  • Completed cards must be received by Tuesday 31st October to go into the draw. The draw takes place on Wednesday 1st November. The winner will be notified and also posted on our Facebook page (@believinginbucketlists)
