My Story

You’re in the right place to find out about and/or to sponsor Caroline Williams.

The story from Caroline…

Now living in Australia but having been born in Christchurch (a long time ago!!!), I am keen to make regular trips back to NZ and put both my outdoor gear and passion for trekking to work! With published Mannering ancestors in early NZ settlement, mountaineering, jet-boating and photography, the countryside, hills and waterways are in my DNA and those who know me will tell you that I ooze excitement at everything New Zealand. MS is also a cause which is very close to my heart, impacting directly on family members.

The Great New Zealand Trek was founded on the idea of raising funds for MS research by walking, cycling or horse riding the length of New Zealand, North to Sound, around 200 kms each year, with Stage 1 starting in 2006. I could hardly believe my luck, because this gave me a chance to marry these two passions, MS and NZ!! Then in 2012 I found yet another passion… love-of-my-life, Barry so I married him too!

Barry comes with me now, and we get to catch up with my dear NZ mob (Hi Cuzzies!), as well as many wonderful new Trek friends.

The 2018 GNZT went from Ophir to Lawrence, (south-east from Central Otago distract towards Dunedin), and took in some amazing places, people, views, elevations and temperatures! Barry and I walked, and we were once again blessed with the company and support of brother-in-law and keen mountain biker, David Koch.

I can hardly believe it… only one more Trek (16th to 24th March 2019), then we’ll get to the bottom… Bluff!! (No… I’m not “bluffing”. Bluff is the name of the little town at the bottom of NZ’s south island and is world-famous for its oysters. Check it out on Google!)

I was so busy with work before heading to NZ for this year’s Trek, I didn’t get time to get in touch with folks to offer a chance to sponsor me with donations for MS, so if you would like to now do so, that would be wonderful.

Love, Caroline x
