The Conquer Taupo Challenge

Phase 3 - and we did it!!!!!!

March 24 - We hit the streets and rode the length of lake Taupo! It was great fun, hard work, and praise the Lord - no accidents or injuries!!!!

Big thanks goes to Andy Horton for being such a great support driver.  We weren't jealous of your sweet music, aircon, and treats that happened to find their way into the support all! :)

And thanks so much to everyone who has so generously supported us. We are making such a massive impact on those who are trapped in such horrible circumstances. So thank you!!!

Phase 2 - Conquered!

March 17 - After the climb, we headed to the river for Phase 2 of our Conquer Taupo Challange. We swam for 2 hours from Control Gate Bridge Carpark to Reid's Farm. Check out our footage @60below on Insta. 

(Disclaimer - we had some people with us who could not swim so we did bring one flotation device for them to sit on. However, they were not part of the Conquer Team and we were not allowed to hold onto or sit on it - we swam the whole way.) 

Thank you so much for your support!

Phase 1 Complete!

March 17 - We were raring to go by 8 am and we set off to climb Mt Tauhara. We had a lot of fun, but it was HARD WORK!!!! It took us 1.5 hours to reach the summit and about 45 minutes to the bottom again. Check out @60below on Instagram to see the footage. 

Needless to say, we were all VERY sore afterwards!!!

Thank you so much to those who supported us by becoming a sponsor - together we are making a real difference to those stuck in horrifying exploitative situations.

We're fundraising for Tearfund

We've gathered together a bunch of Taupo teens to help combat human trafficking and exploitation.  We are going to Conquer Taupo by trekking Mt Tauhara, cycling the length of Lake Taupo, and wrestling the Mighty Waikato River.

We would love you to join us by sponsoring us today!  Many thanks from Conquer Taupo Team.
