Super Maori Fullas Ride Against Family Violence

05 February 2009

They look tough but their message is of love and respect for all.

Super Maori Fullas Roger, Jack, Mathew and Mervyn are riding against family violence on their Harley Davidson's in February, from Cape Reinga to Bluff and back.

The brothers' aim is to attract New Zealanders from all corners of the country and all walks of life to the Super Maori Fulla way of life.

They grew up the Super Maori Fulla way - surrounded by love and respect.

"There's no family violence in our whanau, we treat everyone with the same respect and love whatever their age, colour, circumstances or behaviour."

Super Maori Fullas are opposed to family violence in any form to any person. They are sharing their kaupapa to encourage others to live violence free lives.

"Anyone can be a Super Maori Fulla," says Jack.

Their road trip starts at Cape Reinga on Waitangi Day and ends in Kaitaia on 24 February. Patron Sir Paul Reeves will officially close the ride.

The brothers will be speaking at community events along the way, see the campaign calendar for details.
