On Friday March 20, we’re inviting YOU to come walk the fantastic 16km Coast to Coast with us from Onehunga to downtown Auckland. It’s all to raise money for roadies and crew who are in trouble and need vital support.
Roadies and production crew are the often unseen but essential backbone of the live music events that we all enjoy. These roles can take their toll on those involved and while the shows are the obvious highlight, life in live music can be a very hand-to-mouth existence. When illness, injury, distress and hardship strike, life can become very hard, very quickly.
The proceeds from the Roady for Roadies walk will support our work providing tailored online, on the phone and in person professional counselling support for roadies experiencing distress and wellbeing issues. We also provide emergency financial assistance packages to live production people and their families who are suffering with illness, injury and hardship.
How you can help and take part
Tickets are available at Ticketmaster now, there are three different price levels and you can choose the one that suits your pocket!
- $25 (I’d like to help out)
- $50 (I’d like to give a bit more)
- $100 (my boss is paying)
The walk begins at Horns Reserve in Onehunga at 1pm and will end at The Great South Pacific Tuning Fork adjacent to Spark Arena, where refreshments will be provided. The walk takes approximately 3-4 hours. Love Police ATM have designed an amazing T-Shirt and they will be giving every participant walker a T-Shirt at the finish line.
