Hello Family and friends ,

I had such a great time riding in The Tour of NZ in 2017 raising money for Cancer ,I have decided to give it another shot before my body packs it in !! 

Please again support me if you can and help me raise funds for this very worthy cause.

I really appreiciated all the support we received in 2017 and am looking forward to having a great ride in the up coming Tour of NZ taking in both the South Island and the North.

Thanks again



Almost one New Zealander every day is diagnosed with Neuroendocrine Cancer which is higher in number than brain, ovarian and cervical cancers. This is something that can affect anyone, at any age and can cost upwards of $50,000 to treat it. This is huge amount of money and stress for someone facing cancer treatment. Plus there is no facility currently available in New Zealand to treat this. I want to help change this and bring the treatment to NZ but need your help and support for it to happen. 

On 6th April 2019 I will begin a 630 km challenging cycle ride starting from Queenstown that will end in Wellington. The ride is to raise awareness and funds for Unicorn Foundation which is a registered charity dedicated to revolutionising the way Neuroendocrine Tumours/Cancer (NET Cancer) is diagnosed and managed in New Zealand.

While most people have been relaxing over summer, I’ve been training most days on my bike to prepare myself for this challenging bike ride. This will be my second bike ride to help make a difference for New Zealanders. To make this a success I would love your support – please donate whatever you can manage to help with this cause. 

Your donations will go towards providing support to patients, families and medical professionals involved in treatment for Neuroendocrine Tumours/Cancer (NET Cancer). Unicorn Foundation NZ is also currently working towards bringing specialised treatment called PRRT to NZ that will be a huge relief to the patients.

I cannot do this alone and therefore require your support to encourage and back me up. Together lets help NET cancer patients in New Zealand with their treatment. 

To donate please click on green Donate Now button to support me and I will do my best to keep you updated with my training and my challenge.  But make sure you leave me a nice note so I know to thank you and to keep you informed. All donations will be eligible for a tax rebate – remember every little bit counts! Thank you very much for your generosity
