Trans-Tasman Row

This September, Big Buddy Blair Cranston is taking on the incredible challenge of rowing 1892km, the distance of the Trans-Tasman, on a rowing machine to raise money for the Big Buddy programme.

Trans-Tasman Row

Big Buddy Blair Cranston has been matched with 11 year old Linus for nearly two years. Having experienced the incredible impact this friendship is having on both their lives he has decided to embark on an amazing challenge to raise funds to support more boys living without their dads.

From September, Blair will be rowing the distance between New Zealand and Australia on a rowing machine. This 1892km row, equivalent to the Trans-Tasman, will take place at Club Physical in Whangaparoa and is being supported by Bayleys in the North.

The goal is to reach $30,000 in sponsorship, to support the Big Buddy programme and help match another 15 boys with a Big Buddy to spend time with.

We are encouraging the local community to get behind Blair by inviting them to donate using the form below, or drop in to Club Physical and row with him, for which Bayleys will donate $1 for every kilometre!

Your support will help turn Blair’s amazing efforts into much needed funds for Big Buddy – helping to screen and match more great men with boys who don’t have their dads around.
