Dry July - Marama Kore Haurangi
Dry July - Marama Kore Haurangi Te Kapa Haka o Ngāti Ranginui and over 200 others have taken up a Tauranga Moana variation of Dry July with the fundraiser - Marama Kore Haurangi Dry July. Participants are showing support for Wiparata and his whanau by staying alcohol free for the entire month of July, and paying a small participation fee of $10. One of the event organisers, Stevie Reweti, expressed her gratitude on the event Facebook page. She stated, “Can I just say we are so overwhelmed with all the koha/moni aroha that has flowed in these last few days. The support is absolutely beautiful and does not go unseen. We love you all. ” Whatever you have decided to give up for the month, kia kaha to all our whanau taking part in Dry July. If you would like to donate to this kaupapa and support Wiparata’s whanau, please get in contact with us and we will pass on the nominated account details.
