Team Pic's Peanut Butter is competing in GodZone - the ultimate adventure racing experience (500km) to raise funds for NET Cancer

Main image

  Nationwide Cancer Teams Endurance

In February 2017, four friends will race GODZone Pure as Team Pic's Peanut Butter. GodZone is a self-supported 500km adventure race in the Queenstown region which involves alpine trekking, mountain biking, kayaking, canoeing and running to reach the finish line all while navigating by map and compass. It is up to them when they sleep, eat, rest and race.

The team consists of Peter, Scotty, Hazel and Ed who are all young professionals out looking to make a difference. The team is excited to raise awareness and funds for Unicorn Foundation NZ.

This charity has been chosen due to the overwhelming amount of help it has provided to Peter and his family as his mum Katy, has fought her very own battle with NET cancer. She is doing well now thanks to the team at Unicorn Foundation NZ. The team hopes they can allow more families to feel the benefits the foundation provides through raising funds and awareness of this cancer.

We hope you can spare some change to perhaps change somebody like Katy's and Peter's lives for the better. We look forward to having you follow our adventure!

About us

Unicorn Foundation NZ is a registered charity aiming to provide support and information to patients, families and medical professionals involved in the treatment for Neuroendocrine Tumours/Cancer (NET Cancer).

Around one New Zealander every day is diagnosed with NET Cancer - which makes this cancer more common than brain, thyroid, ovarian and cervical cancers. These tumours are typically slow growing cancer, which means there are thousands of kiwis living and trying to manage this cancer. Right now, they desperately need improved access to treatment.

We are currently working towards bringing specialised treatment called PRRT to NZ. Currently our NET cancer patients have to self-fund and travel to Australia to receive it, (no government support) which personally costs each patient around $50,000. This is a huge amount of money and stress for someone facing cancer treatment. We really appreciate your support, especially as we are a very small charity so every dollar donated will make a huge difference. Please help us improve the lives of thousands of kiwis.

Use of funds

Funds raised will go to Unicorn Foundation NZ who provide patient support, increased access to treatment, research and awareness for Neuroendocrine Tumours/ Cancer, (NET Cancer) in NZ and do so without any government funding. Thanks for your support!
