The I Got Your Back Pack Team recently won the Waitematā Local Board Good Citizens 2019: Community Group Award. I had the privilege to co-accept this award with Anita on behalf of IGYBP. This is a great achievement and recognition for our team's hard work with special thanks going out to all our volunteers, but specifically Liane Koutris and Kirsty Elmiger who are also part of our core operations team.
We are small but mighty!

Courage, Connection & Badassery Event
BADASS WINNERS! We were moved by the challenges and courage so many people face on a daily basis. We’d love to have you all on the stage, but we can’t, we had to choose.
Our two winners were Nicola (Nix) Adams and Anita Hinton (I Got Your Back Pack) Their stories, humility and generous spirits are nothing short of totally inspiring.
