2 years ago Anita, Annabel and Alex Nicholson were taken from us way too early on Easter Sunday 2019. The Nicholsons were a big rugby family and with Ben, Anita had already started to help raise money for The Atlas Foundation -a rugby based charity doing so much good in some of the poorest communities in the world. The love of rugby is purely the vehicle to provide safety, education and health support to those who need it most.

By walking the 100km in just two days (yes that’s over two marathons and will probably take us at least 20 hours!) of the Race to the Stones course with Ben, some of his family and other good friends we hope to raise money to support the great work The Atlas Foundation does and honour Anita, Annabel and Alex every step of the way. The photo below is from happier times the last time we were all together-we flew in from Sydney, the Nicholson’s from Singapore and met for lunch in Auckland by the harbour before heading to Eden Park for the first 2017 New Zealand v British & Irish Lions First test. A weekend together we will never forget x
