Local duo hit the road, Pork Pie style

Mar 27, 2023

An adventurous local Wānaka duo will join 50 other teams from all over New Zealand to drive their minis the length of the country, starting 31st March. It’s all in the name of charity, with an ambitious $5,000 target in place.

The Pork Pie Charity Run, inspired by the iconic Kiwi film ‘Goodbye Pork Pie’ has become a popular event for mini enthusiasts in New Zealand and internationally. Team Lake Wānaka is made up of Jarrod Frazer from the Mount Aspiring Rotary Club in Wānaka, and his 17 year old daughter Zoe Frazer. They will make the trip from Paihia to Invercargill just before Easter.

“This will be our third time participating in this Charity event for KidsCan,” said Jarrod. “We took part our first one in 2019, then in 2021, and are again one of the lucky teams to register in time to take part in the 2023 event.” He says that they are looking forward to “a whole heap of fun.”

In 2021, the event raised more than $325,000 for KidsCan. KidsCan supports over 200,000 kids in over 800 schools. They help the 1 in 6 Kiwi kids experiencing hardship by providing food, jackets, shoes and health products to schools and early childhood centres across New Zealand.
