Vasa Tasele and Joe O'Neill are two men on a mission.
They are walking from Auckland to Wellington to raise awareness of child abuse, and hope to raise $50,000 in the process for the children at the Starship Foundation.
The pair are passionate about fitness, and want to put their bodies on the line for a good cause.
They are encouraging others to join them on the walk, and will visit communities along their journey to talk about child abuse.
Their journey begins October 22 - you can donate to the Starship Foundation by visiting their website
