Running for fitness becomes global goal

• By Jacob Page

THE DESIRE to “lose a few pounds”

after university has taken Jeremy

Duggan all around the world one

fast footstep at a time.

The 33-year-old Christchurch

Hospital physiotherapist and social

runner decided something needed

to change 15 years ago.

“I’d over-indulged in the university

lifestyle and things were

starting to get away from me so I

decided I’d set a goal to complete

the Christchurch Half Marathon

in 2006.

“Came in with a time of 2hr 36sec,

so not bad for a first time effort.”

Duggan, who lives in Avonhead

with wife Jo and daughter Eleanor,

said running came to him at the

right time.

“I played cricket and hockey growing

up.

“Running is a personal thing, you

don’t need to rely on anyone else,

you just get out there and do it.

“Along with going to the gym,

that was the motivation I needed,”

he said.

Since 2006, he has completed full

marathons on four continents, including

Antarctica, and plans to tick off

the remaining three, Asia, North

America and Africa when time and

travel allows.

“I did the London Marathon in

2013, where I dressed up as an All

Black carrying a rugby ball all the

way.

“Two years ago I did Antarctica

in March. That was all layering,” he

said. • Turn to page 2

“My wife and I did six months

around South America after that,

and I did no training, I thought

the hiking we were doing would be

enough but it wasn’t.

“I did that one in Uruguay in

Montevideo. I met the runners wall

at the 21km halfway mark.

“Then I did Queenstown for the

Australasia leg last year and hit the

wall early in that one too.

“It’s not as flat as many would

expect.”

Duggan said he was also eager

to give back to the running community,

so began volunteering with

Achilles New Zealand’s Christchurch

chapter.

The organisation helps people who

are visually impaired or have other

disabilities the chance to get active

through running.

The group meets every fortnight at

the Antigua Boat Sheds.

Their aim this year was to send a

team to the New York Marathon in

November, which is now in serious

doubt due to the coronavirus outbreak.

“There’s been lots of fundraising

done, so we’ll just see what happens,

but it may be a 2021 goal,” said

Duggan.

“They go up to Wellington for

Round The Bays in February and

they do other events throughout the

year so it’s a great thing, and there’s

some pretty good athletes among

them.”

Duggan said running had taken

him to many great locations and got

him to a point in his life he would

not have believed he could get to at

the start.

“If we rewound the clock 15 years,

I wouldn’t have put myself where I

am now. But it’s been really good.”

physical ailments any quicker

Fundraiser for

Heart Kids

• By Bea Gooding

A NEW fundraiser has been

established providing crucial

support for families affected

by congenital heart defects in

Canterbury.

The Big Strides for Brave

Hearts initiative is a first for

Heart Kids New Zealand, which

encourages people to bike, walk,

run or scooter over a chosen

distance while raising money for

heart families.

Heart Kids in Canterbury

provide emotional support,

grants and activities for families

both in Christchurch and when

they go to Auckland for surgery

at Starship Hospital.

Family support worker Claire

Sword said everyone from all

diseases. ​

walks of life should get involved

as they would be helping to support

550 families in the region.

“Getting on board will give

us the ability to actually provide

that support,” she said.

“We had to think outside the

box because we usually have collection

days in June, but they’ve

been cancelled due to Covid-19.”

The challenge of covering a

distance, whether it was 8km or

310km, gave people a chance to

set goals for themselves for a great

cause, according to Ms Sword.

The fundraiser gives the charity

the means to further provide travel

and accommodation subsidies,

host events and put together gift

packs.

Gloves gifted to gardeners

HUNDREDS OF gardening

gloves have been donated to

community volunteers in

Christchurch as they eagerly

return to their gardens.

Energy company Orion

made the donation of 300

gloves to the Canterbury

Community Gardens

Association, which supports

35 gardens in the city.

New Brighton community

garden manager and CCGA

chairwoman Catherine O’Neill

said Covid-19 presented even

greater hygiene challenges to the

activity.

“In the past when new volunteers

came along to help and

haven’t brought their own gloves,

they were directed to the store of

shared gloves,” she said.

“To make sure we’re not passing

anything on, now we’ll be

able to give people their own pair

of new gloves.

“It’s such a peaceful, friendly

way to spend a couple of hours

with other people, and now everyone

can join in without having

to worry.”

Ms O’Neill said they would

be clearing out spent summer

crops, planting garlic, beans,

snow peas and much more, replenishing

the soil with compost

and mulch.

“Whether you’re eight or 80, a

community garden is a place you

can wander into and find a place

that makes you feel at home,” she

said.

Orion Connections manager

Steve Hix, who has arranged

power connections for a number

of community gardens over the

years organised the glove donation

by Orion with the support

of Mitre 10 Ferrymead.

“We have a staff community

fund, and I thought this would

be a great initiative to support, in

a practical way,” said Mr Hix.

GIVING BACK: Catherine

“It is great to see people

investing their time in a

builds sustainability, gets

everyone together, and

produces organically grown

fresh food.”

New online book initiative for seniors

A NEW online book programme

has been set up with older

Cantabrians in mind, aiming

to maintain social interaction

with others while physically

distanced.

Campfire - Stories Read Aloud

for Adults was created by the city

council’s libraries staff, featuring

a fresh chapter read by librarians

from a book every Wednesday

and Friday.

City council head of libraries

and information Carolyn Robertson

said library staff produced

the programme with “our older

adult community in mind and

in collaboration with Age Concern.”

“It is a story time for seniors

as we help ensure that our older

library users remain engaged

during the lockdown,” she said.

“We believe Campfire can

boost well-being for older adults

and bring a fresh face – and

voice – to their day. They can

watch and listen to our librarians

as they read aloud.

Ms Robertson said for many

older people who have enjoyed

books, listening to another voice

can bring comfort in connection.

“Some may have also lost the

ability to read because of poor

eyesight or physical impairments.

We want to hold on to

that social interaction and love of

books.”

Age Concern Canterbury chief

executive Simon Templeton has

welcomed the story time programme,

describing Campfire as

“a great initiative.”

“Older people are often avid

readers, so any programme that

enables people to stay connected

with their library, with others

and with reading is great,” Mr

Templeton said.

“Some specific groups will

benefit, including those with

vision impairment, dexterity

issues, or the housebound. I

think this type of programme

will grow in popularity as the

population ages.

“I see it as a daily part of

residential care therapy for rest

home residents, and the means

to have a ‘book club’ for those

who can’t read.

“While many older people do

not use the internet, there is a

large number who do – and this

is growing,” he said.

Anyone can access Campfire

via the libraries’ website.

A FAMILY known for

their creative teddy

bear displays during

the lockdown are due

to release a book next

week while raising

money for Christchurch

food banks.

The adventures of Theodore

Bear and Rudolph

brought joy to the Opawa

neighbourhood in the past

few weeks, with the bears

undertaking different outdoor

activities each day.

Whether it was chopping

wood, having a bear picnic,

washing the car or playing

board games, local families

loved it so much that they

asked for more – a book that

compiled all of their adventures

in one place.

Opawa resident Susan

Doherty said her daughter,

Emma, developed 30 ideas for

the setup one day before the

lockdown began; not satisfied

with simply placing bears by

the window.

“I shared Theodore Bear

and Rudolph’s adventures on

Facebook and Instagram. Later

I received messages from people

who were by themselves, feeling

isolated, enjoying the daily

posts,” she said.

ADVENTURE: Theodore Bear and Rudolph made daily

appearances over the lockdown, much to the amusement

of the local children. A book based on their exploits will

donate all profits to Christchurch City Mission’s food bank.

“It soon became apparent

that this was helping members

of my community, both young

and old, and it was much bigger

than two bears sitting at

the gate.”

Because people had expressed

an interest, the idea

for the book came to life and

it was now in its final stages of

printing.

Mrs Doherty and her

daughter planned to donate all

profits from the book’s sales to

the Christchurch City Mission

Foodbank.

“I think that majority of

people purchasing the book

will use it as a keepsake of this

period of time and how we as

JOY: Susan Doherty and her

daughter Emma were the

masterminds behind The

Bear and Rudolph.

a community got through the

lockdown,” she said.

In addition to the book,

Theodore Bear was also featured

on postage stamps this

month because his photo was

one of six that won New Zealand

Post’s Share your Bear

competition.

Said Mrs Doherty: “I feel

happy that I have brought joy

to other people in the community

which has been a difficult

time for a lot of us, especially

for those living alone.”

New winter boots

offer style & comfort

The Shoe Room in Riccarton Road, just across from

the Bush Inn Centre, had only been open a few months

before lockdown required all retail outlets to close, and

now owner Charlotte Russell and her team are excited to

welcome customers back again.

The Mephisto range comes in a range

of funky colours.

“We have a wonderful new shipment of winter

footwear that has just arrived, and we look forward to

showing these styles to our customers,” Charlotte says.

A key feature of the new range is the selection of

elegant ankle boots from several leading brands, all

designed to complement the new season’s fashion

trends. For example, there are the platform ankle boots

from Mephisto in leather and nubuck suede, which are

available in a selection of funky colours, as well as black.

Not only stylish, these Chelsea-style boots offer the

comfort of an air cushion sole.

The Planet range of low-cut ankle boots, also available

in suede and leather, feature a small heel, removeable

insoles for extra comfort and come in a selection of

the new season’s fashion colours. Planet is a ‘green’

company with an environmental philosophy that sees

them planting a tree for every pair of shoes sold.

A new brand being introduced at the Shoe Room this

season is the Australian brand, Klouds. Their range of

stylish court shoes feature seamless stretch leather

tops, so they fit extremely well and are very comfortable.

While the shop was closed the Shoe Room offered

customers an online purchasing option though their

website www.theshoeroom.co.nz. Shoppers have been

invited to browse through the selection online then call

or email the Shoe Room to place their order.

Boots by Earth complement winter

fashion trends.

“By inviting customers to contact us we are offering

a personal service though which we can discuss their

requirements and ensure they get the right fit,” Charlotte

says. “For us, it’s all about the fit, and this service is still

available.”

The Shoe Room is located at Unit 3, 355 Riccarton

Road, opposite the Lone Star. Opening hours are

Monday 10am-5.30pm, Tuesday to Friday 9.30am-

5.30pm, Saturday 10am-4pm and late night by

arrangement.

For customer convenience there is an off-street

parking area behind the shop, with access from Auburn

Avenue. Dedicated Shoe Room parking spaces are

located right by the back door.

The Shoe Room is located at Unit 3, 355 Riccarton Road, opposite the Lone Star.

Opening hours are Monday 10am-5.30pm, Tuesday to Friday 9.30am-5.30pm,

Saturday 10am-4pm, late night by arrangement. Off street parking available.

Young people prepare for

40-hour famine fundraiser

HUNDREDS OF young people

in Canterbury are expected to

take part in the World Vision 40

Hour Famine this year.

Spread across 40 hours from

June 5 to 7, World Vision said

90,000 young Kiwis are set to

take part and raise funds for

the people of Malawi, who are

experiencing extreme weather

events on top of added pressure

from Covid-19.

Cantabrian youth ambassadors

Izaac Wilson and Jess McLennan,

along with Alyssa Wilson,

Daniel Rickman and Hayley

Gotlieb – were championing the

event this year.

The group also travelled to

Malawi late last year to meet

some of the people who will

benefit from the event, which

was the country’s largest youth

fundraiser.

Said Jess: “I don’t think there

was really any one moment when

it just clicked for me that ‘this is

the reality of living in Malawi,’

but it has sunk in a little more

every single day since I’ve been

back in New Zealand,”

“It’s in the every day moments

that I think about everyone I

met and what I saw in Malawi. I

look at my mum cooking dinner

and think to myself: ‘I wonder if

Prisca’s mum has enough food to

cook meals for her kids today?’

“I know that every single person

who signs up for the 40 Hour

Famine, and the money they

raise, will help create real and

actual change for the climatevulnerable

Malawians who need

it most.”

Since it began in 1975, the

NZ 40-hour famine has raised

more than $80 million, bringing

hope to thousands of children

living in poverty in more than 40

countries.

World Vision NZ national

director Grant Bayldon said the

40 Hour Famine was a calendar

item he looked forward to each

year, adding that this year it

seemed all the more crucial to

provide a platform for youth

to rally together and make a

change.

“As the world shifts, the challenges

Malawians face remain –

and this means now, more than

ever, we need to do all we can to

fight hunger and injustice.

“This is our chance to show

the world what great global

SERVICE: World Vision youth

ambassadors (left to right) Izaac

Wilson, Hayley Gotlieb, Jess

McLennan, Alyssa Wilson and

Daniel Rickman in Malawi. ​

neighbours we can be. As we do

what we can for the vulnerable

here, let’s also do what we can for

the most vulnerable around the

world.”

Mr Bayldon added that he was

looking forward to seeing what

challenges people took on.

Money raised in this year’s

event will make a difference by

providing schools and farmers

with seeds for crops, watering

systems and goats so the people

of Malawi can build resilient and

sustainable farming, reducing

the impact of climate change on

their communities.

The work will also ensure they

were able to better cope with external

factors out of their control,

be it extreme weather events or a

new virulent virus, according to

Mr Bayldon.

Those who take part can

choose their own challenge or

select something to give up –

such as going without transport,

furniture or technology – and

ask people to support their

efforts by donating.
