Harcourts Highland Group Supports Pork Pie Charity Run

Three in a row – Wanaka local Jarrod Frazer and his daughter Zoe are setting off from Paihia in the Bay of Islands and driving to Invercargill in their classic Mini fundraising for KidsCan NZ.

Harcourts Highland Group is one of Team Lake Wanaka’s generous sponsors helping Jarrod and Zoe get to the beginning of the Pork Pie Charity Run.

The Pork Pie Charity Run is a bi-annual fundraising road trip, based loosely on the route taken by the Blondini Gang in the classic New Zealand film ‘Goodbye Pork Pie’.

Starting on March 31, 50 minis travel more than 3,000kms over six days aiming to reach Invercargill on April 5.

They will encounter some of New Zealand’s biggest potholes, wettest valleys, climb through cold mountain passes, cruise long South Island straights, pass through our biggest cities and friendliest rural towns along the way.

The KidsCan Charitable Trust works to support and help New Zealand kids living in poverty in over 1000 lower decile schools and early childhood centres across the country.

Harcourts Wanaka collected funds at the Wanaka A & P show over the weekend helping to raise funds for the trip. 

Jarrod says he’s thrilled and thankful to have Harcourts behind him.

“I contacted Grant from the Wanaka office as soon as Zoe and I signed up to the challenge. He and the team came on board immediately offering financial support, their platform and database.

Harcourts Wanaka manager Grant Parker says they’re delighted to get behind such an important cause.

“Jarrod is a good stick who is constantly in the community helping where he can. We were more than happy to jump on board and use our platform to share the word and encourage others to donate generously.”

The charity run has raised funds for Starship Hospital, Leukaemia & Blood Cancer New Zealand and KidsCan. To date across all 7 previous events over $1,000,000 has been raised, with $320,000 raised in 2021. We are aiming to raise well in excess of $325,000 this time around, and are well on our way to doing that said Jarrod
