Kia Mārō Mā Matiu is our ongoing charity walking project which aims to link the key places where Matt was respected and loved, bringing together the communities of which he remains an influential part. Originally a fundraiser from Worthing to London Irish, we decided following its amazing success and reach to make it an ongoing appeal, fundraiser and event.
If you're interested in finding out more or interested in hosting or partaking in a Kia Mārō Mā Matui Walk of your own, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to see how you can get involved!

We think it’s important to do justice to Matt’s home tongue, you may have therefore noticed a change to our walk’s name.
We consulted with a Māori linguist and this is the preferred translation for the message we tried to convey;
Kia mārō mā Matiu - be determined/resolute like/in the way/ Matt was.
