One mission – your mission.

The Westpac Chopper Challenge has landed!

The Westpac Rescue Helicopter crews work together 24/7, 365 days a year to complete over 1000 rescue missions, every mission presenting multiple mental and physical obstacles to overcome.

Now it’s your turn to face the obstacles…

On 17th November we are taking off for Matakana for the ultimate test of teamwork, endurance, strength, and stamina…

The Auckland Rescue Helicopter Trust has partnered with Westpac and Action Matakana to bring you this unparalleled test of your physical and mental capabilities.

You and your team will be put against the clock to complete either one or two laps of this purpose-designed 3km course with over 30 demanding obstacles in your path. Think scaling 9ft walls, wading through creeks, rope swinging over mud pits and that’s just the start.

One lap or 2, teamwork - and a change of clothes - will be vital!

“I have traveled all around the world competing in trail runs and Action Matakana is one of the best courses out there in terms of obstacles.” - Liam Wilkinson – Ascend Fit

Why compete? Did you know Westpac Rescue Helicopter Crews work in teams of four? These teams include a Doctor, a Pilot, a Crewman, and an Intensive Care Paramedic. Although each has their own role on the team, it is imperative that they work together to complete each life-saving mission. The Chopper Challenge has been created to recognise this inspiring teamwork and raise vital funding for this life-saving service.

Rise to the challenge!

Our goal is to raise $100,000 and so we are asking you and your team to fundraise $5,000 for the Auckland Rescue Helicopter Trust – that’s the average cost of one rescue mission.
