Pork Pie Charity Run 2019

KidsCan is excited and proud to be the charity partner of the Pork Pie Charity Run! The 2019 edition will be the sixth running of this quintessentially Kiwi event. In homage to the beloved Kiwi classic movie 'Goodbye Pork Pie' 60 teams will drive their MINI's more than 2,500km from Kaitaia to Invercargill over six days.

Check out the teams here.

On their journey teams will pass through our biggest cities and friendliest rural towns and engage with the community including much anticipated school visits. Teams commit to raising funds for KidsCan and in 2017 over $200,000 was raised to help Kiwi kids in need. Competition for top spot on the fundraising leaderboard is fierce but it’s all in the name of fun and making as big a difference as possible. Support your favourite team now!

This truly epic journey is a test of willpower, stamina, and fundraising enthusiasm like no other!
