This week Mikki talks to Mal Law, adventurer, fundraiser, storyteller and co-founder of Wild Things, the hub of kiwi trail running where members can find resources that give countless ideas, inspiration and information on where to run.
Mal has inspired countless people to chase their own adventures as he turned his love of trail running and adventure into philanthropic ventures, raising over $800,000 for Leukaemia & Blood Cancer NZ and Mental Health NZ with his 7 in 7 campaign (running 7 Great Walks in 7 days) and the High 5-0 challenge (running up 50 peaks in 50 days) before turning his attention to building a solid community of trail runners online, with Wild Things. Mikki and Mal talk about this and how to build a foundation and story to support a charity, they talk about Mal’s battle with chronic fatigue. We also mention the soon to be launched event, The Wild, a 100 mile event run across the bottom of the South Island in the area Mal now calls home. Enjoy this conversation!
