Sahara Charity Challenge - Movie Night Fundraiser

8 July 2012

Local Wellingtonians Greig Rightford and William Tokona are competing in the legendary Marathon De Sables in early 2013 - a 243 km endurance race across the Moroccan Sahara.  One of the reasons they are taking on this incredible challenge is to raise money for the Malaghan Institute!  You can read more about their story here.

As part of their build-up Greig and Willie are hosting a Movie Night Fundraiser on Thu, 26 July 2012 at 8.30 pm and invite you to come along.  All profits from the movie night will go to the Malaghan Institute.

Here is what Greig has to say:
