" For Alan " Synopsis :

In December 2009 New Zealander Mal Law made history by becoming the first person ever to run NZ’s 7 mainland Great Walks in just 7 days – a total distance of 360 kms in the longest week of his life. It was an adventure to honor the memory of his brother Alan, who died as a teenager from leukemia. In completing the 7in7 Mal raised more than $85,000 for the Leukemia & Blood Foundation of NZ and so helped make a huge difference to people suffering from this cruel illness.
Mal Law Quote:
“I suspect that the experience of losing my ‘big bro’ when I was just 9 years old has had quite an impact on my life. It’s difficult to imagine that it hasn’t shaped the person I am today – for better or worse – in some way or other. Perhaps this is what gives me the fight to take on big challenges? Who knows?”
“No matter. Alan, this one is for you bro’
