Naki Run Amuck raises $8,500

Naki Run Amuck

Running through the mud at Urenui Beach isn’t something you would usually do on a Sunday afternoon, but as the primary beneficiary of the 2017 Naki Run Amuck event we couldn’t wait to take part.

Dressed in flying superhero costumes, staff and volunteers joined in the fun on Sunday 21 May, and were overwhelmed with the $8,500 raised for the rescue helicopter.

A heartfelt thanks to the Rotary Club of New Plymouth North, organisers of this annual charity event.

Events held throughout the Taranaki region have raised almost $40,000 for the rescue helicopter.

  • Cut a Trails Events
  • Energy City Hyundai
  • Lions Club of Urenui
  • Mangaotea Bull Sale auction
  • New World Summer BBQ
  • Rotary Club of Waitara
  • Taranaki Truckers Group
  • Toko Lions Club

The Toko Lions Club Chateau to Plateau motorcycle ride raised $8000. Almost $80,000 has been raised over the last 10 years.

Thank you to everyone who organised, volunteered and supported these events. Your community spirit and generous financial support helps keep our rescue helicopter in the air.
