On Friday the 9th of May I will taking part in a charity bike ride from Queenstown to Invercargill to raise money for the Westpac rescue helicopter service.
This is a great cause for Southlanders. Here in the South we have the most spread out population compared to the local hospitals of anywhere in New Zealand. With these distances to deal with the rescue helicopter service is literally lifesaving.
Agreeing to raise money for this worthwhile cause was easy, however two weeks out with not enough training it is looking pretty daunting at the moment.
If you would like to find out more please check out the ride’s Facebook page, or if you want to donate please visit http://www.fundraiseonline.co.nz/Qt2invWestpacChopperRide/.
To show my personal support of this cause (other than the blisters and frostbite) ABLE will match the total donations I receive up to $500.
