Wairua Spirit perfectly embodies the commitment to excellence, grit, long-term development, determination and character that we at the Just Be Nice Project promote. We are overjoyed at the opportunity to support Jamie Milne as he and the Wairua team support us.
Helping people, help people. It’s what we do, we can’t do it without the commitment of humans like Jamie, we can’t do it without strong Wairua.
Over the next decade 2019 – 2029 we will be a part of creating an artefact in the form of a documentary that will explore the powerful, often invisible, drivers of the human spirit in response to extreme physical demands. The subject of ‘Wairua’ will be explored in the testing environment of ultra-endurance running. Jamie will be taking part in another decade of extreme tests of mind and body, taking part in new Ultra-marathon challenges each year.
10 years, 10 of the worlds most challenging Ultra-Marathons and 10 years of impact. The events are;
The first event will be the Hurt 100 in Oahu Hawaii a 100-Mile Endurance Run. Jamie has been selected as a participant through the 2019 HURT 100 lottery process and will compete this coming January 2019 (only 100 elite ultra-runners are selected annually).
We cannot overstate our appreciation for the opportunity to be a part of the Wairua Spirit story, we look forward to growing and building Wairua together over the coming decade.

We want to change the way people help people. To do that, we need to continually improve the understanding of the needs of communities and causes of disadvantage. To do that, we actually need to guide people to mastering their own character in order to develop perspective that allows them to understand other people's circumstances.
On this mission, we have seen children being 'taught' disadvantage in a way that actually harms their capacity for resilience and real understanding, not through any bad intent, but through confusion as to the best way to develop understanding and agency for people of all ages.
If you, or anyone you know are looking to build character and resilience, or looking to have a meaningful impact in the world, enquire about our courses and opportunities for partnership below.
