Handcuffed for Hagar raises $24,000!

Participants in Christchurch’s City 2 Surf saw something a bit different this year, as 39 people dressed in black walked the 6km event handcuffed together to raise awareness of human trafficking, and funds for Hagar’s work.


Our initial goal of raising $5000 in sponsorship was rapidly exceeded and the final total was in excess of $24,450!!

It was a fun and very effective way of raising both awareness and funds. Many thanks to all involved, and a special thanks to Casa Construction and BMS for providing the corporate tent and after-run BBQ.
