Kiwis for kiwi are teaming up with Wellington Boxing Gym to hold the Fight for Kiwi in Wellington on the 17th of November. After a successful event last year we are proud to bring the event back to the capital.
This event is an opportunity for you to make a huge difference by raising funds to help protect kiwi. As each boxer that is selected has a fundraising target of $1,500
Kiwi are in the ring every single day, with threats from introduced pests and predators. 95% of unprotected kiwi will die before they reach breeding age. However, kiwi conservation groups around the country are working diligently to protect the kiwi that we still have and they’re having huge success. In the areas around New Zealand that kiwi are protected, they are flourishing. But we need to do more to truly take kiwi from endangered to everywhere.
This is where you come in. The funds you raise will go towards helping to support these kiwi conservation groups around Aotearoa.
As well as helping our national icon, Fight for Kiwi is also an awesome opportunity to challenge yourself. Previous boxers have said that it’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience that they’re really proud of taking on and will never forget.
To cover the cost of the the gear and training there is a fee of $700 that can be paid over the course of your training.
