Crazy Kea Events is a non-profit group that was set up to run fundraising events for Canterbury orienteers travelling and competing in Europe. The Crazy Kea Adventure Race will be a fundraiser for athletes travelling to the World University Orienteering Championships in Switzerland, and Junior World Championships in Portugal next year.
We work closely with local schools and community groups who are fundraising towards their own causes to put on these events.
If you are interested in running an adventure race or rogaine to fundraise for your own group but don't have the expertise required, then get in touch via email or Facebook and lets make it happen!
Who do our events support?
See below for some of the people and groups who have benefited from our fundraising in the past.
