Mike has nystagmus and so does his young nephew, Archie.
Later this year and well into 2020, Mike will be walking the length of New Zealand to help find a cure for nystagmus.
The route he’s following is the Te Araroa pathway, taking in both the north and south islands, on foot and sometimes in a kayak, to raise funding for two charities close to his heart: Nystagmus Network and Gift of Sight.
Mike will set off on his walk in December this year. He thinks it will take him around 131 days to complete. We are in awe of his dedication and will be with him in spirit every step of the way. Meanwhile, Mike will be keeping us updated with his video blogs. You can view his first video, by clicking here.
