The Pork Pie Charity Run is BACK for 2021! After raising KidsCan over an astounding $291,000 through 2018 & 2019, 60 teams will bravely take on the challenge to drive their MINI's the length of New Zealand in homage to the beloved Kiwi classic film 'Goodbye Pork Pie'. Starting in Paihia Friday 26th March 2021, 6 days and 7 nights of adventure will see this courageous (and possibly a bit crazy) crew arrive in Invercargill on Wednesday 31st March.


Check out the fundraising leaderboard here.


Teams will cover just under 2,500km and will be challenged by some of New Zealand's biggest pot holes, wettest valleys, steepest mountain passes, longest of long straights and traffic chaos in our busiest cities. If that isn't enough, teams will be engageing YOUR community through their journey. It's all in the name of fun and making as big a difference as possible by raising funds for KidsCan.


This truly epic journey will test willpower, stamina, and fundraising enthusiasm like no other!


The Pork Pie Charity Run raises funds for KidsCan to help provide Kiwi kids with the essentials they need to get into the classroom in a position to learn. With your help supporting Pork Pie Charity Run teams, you will help to provide food, clothing, shoes, socks and basic health items to Kiwi kids in need. Thank you again for your support!
