Hector's hike

Hector Hines Hectors Hike

To raise awareness for Child Poverty Action Group (CPAG) and for policies that have a child-centred approach, Hector Hines is following the Te Araroa trail from Picton to Bluff, avoiding roads where possible.

Following a spontaneous decision to embark on the adventure - both to support an issue he believes in, and for his own personal development, Hector left his job as a swimming pool life guard, and hit the track.

He is in Wanaka when he joins Bryan Crump, having spent recent days walking across merino wool farming land, meeting farmers and local characters along the way.
