Ko wai tātou – Who are we?
Got To Get Out is a social enterprise, which means we trade to create social impact. We’re in the business of arranging group trips, tours, teaching sports like hiking/biking/paddleboarding, and even taking people to Nepal to follow in the footsteps of Sir Edmund Hillary.
Our social output is to have happier, healthier people in our community. We encourage korero/talking, sharing of kai/food and ideas/whakaro. We have made it our mission to bring people together to create lasting memories in this amazing whenua we call home, Aotearoa.
In the past few years, over 14,000 individual people have joined a Got To Get Out activity. These events range from hikes, bike rides, overnight camp trips, paddleboarding workshops, tours and also indoor events where attendees get social or inspired. We call our whanau “adventurers”, and we have set up dozens of online communities / groups for the many regions of New Zealand, and for lovers of different sports. You can join a group discussion at www.facebook.com/gottogetout/groups
This social enterprise is run mostly by volunteers who kindly give up their time to advance our mission of getting people active and healthy. We also hosts interns from Aotearoa/New Zealand and across the globe to assist with ‘behind the scenes’ elements of GTGO, and we partner with many of the best brands in Aotearoa/New Zealand.
Brand partnerships like with Torpedo7, Toyota Financial Services, Study Auckland, Lacklands/Nikon, and many others have helped us to grow by providing financial or in-kind support so that we can focus on what we do best, getting people into nature,
