Pilgrim Bandits NZ Everest Summit Challenge

A team of four Royal New Zealand Navy Officers (Taylor, Tayla, Nikita and Caitlin) will run/walk the Height of Everest (8848m) in 24 hours to raise money for injured Military and First Responders. 

To make up the height of Mt Everest, we are climbing Mt Parihaka 36 times (9 times each) over 24 hours in "Battle PT" uniform testing both our physical and mental resilience.

Pilgrim Bandits raises funds for expeditions, and grants which provide injured service personnel and emergency services personnel with specialist sports equipment and wheelchairs.

Please support us on this adventure to raise funds for the Pilgrim Bandits NZ, our motto is "Always a Little Further."

Who are the Pilgrim Bandits?

Registered as a charity on 1 March 2010 by ex-Special Forces Members with the view to provide challenges and obstacles that would serve to strengthen the spirit of injured servicemen and women and those from the emergency services.
