An Appeal

Wish to join the walk New Zealand 2010 - 2011 as hard core walker, PR team member, Planner, organises, Support team member

I introduce myself as Sunil M. Joshi, from Bombay, India.

I wish to organise a walk in New Zealand from North tip to South tip of New Zealand.

My previous experience – I have walked approximately 2685 K.mtrs. in Norway from North tip to South tip of Norway.

The basic idea of “Walk New Zealand 2010 -2011, on which I have started working.

This project is in a very preliminary stage!

The proposed project ------------------------

Walk New Zealand 2010 – 2011

Walk New Zealand from North to South, a distance of approximately 2000 kilometers in around 100 days from December 2010 to February 2011 (Around 3 months)


Option A

A charity walk. Raising funds for NGOs (For example – WWF, Red cross etc.) in New Zealand & India.

Method of raising funds

Walk ---- Walk New Zealand from North tip to South tip.

Cultural shows – Demo of Indian dances Katthak or Bharat natyam.

Art shows – Demo of Warli paintings.

Traditional Indian sport – Demo of “Malla khamb”.

Slide shows & lectures – Vanishing cast system in India, Indian culture, emerging
India.

Environmental activity – Planting a tree for a business house.

Teams –
Hard core walking team, who will walk the whole distance.
PR team, who will raise funds.
Demo team, who will perform arts, sports, deliver lectures etc.
Support team, who will do odd jobs.
Total strength – Between 10 & 30.

Walk – Most of the times on roads.
Stay -- schools, community halls, colleges, welfare centers or TENTS.
Eat – Prepare food on stoves.


OR

Option B

Indo – New Zealand friendship walk. We do not raise funds in this option.

Slide shows & lectures – Vanishing cast system in India, Indian culture, Emerging
India.

Walk ---- Walk New Zealand from North tip to South tip.

Slide shows & lectures – Vanishing cast system in India, Indian culture, emerging
India.

Team –
Hard core walking team, who will walk the whole distance & deliver slide shows & lectures.
PR team, who will publicize the walk.
Support team, who will do odd jobs.

Here the team strength would be between 5 & 20.

There are lots of questions in my mind ---

1) How could I find an organization in New Zealand?
2) Can any celebrity would join this kind of a walk for some days?
3) Can the team walk on motorways ?
4) Can the authorities allow the walkers as a special case to walk on motorways?
5) Can a support vehicle would be made available for this venture?
6) How can I find walking members from New Zealand?
7) Is it possible in New Zealand to stay in schools, community centres etc. (Free of cost)
8)Is it possible to camp on government lands / private properties without any prior permission?

Please help me ……………………..
