Solo circumnavigation to help raise money for Kents family and hopefully cancer research awareness.

Main image

My name is Joel and I will be attempting to complete a solo circumnavigation of the North Island of New Zealand. Roughly 2800km of coast line.

With Kent sadly passing away almost a month ago, the money will know first go to his sister Tracy Morrow, who will be the beneficiary that will forward the money to the kids, helping raise them and get them a some what normal life, living without their father.

Please help me raise money for this good cause and awareness for the importance of cancer research.

Joel Buckley's involvement (page creator)

Kent Allan was a family friend of ours and I just want to see what I can do to help his family out, as they were his world. The kids were school mates with my brother, and his sister and I share the love for a great man that was Kent. RIP brother.

Use of funds

It will go towards Kent's mortgage, family holiday and if possible more surgery. Any access will be donated to cancer research of Kent's choice.

New beneficiary of funds  25 October 2019

Posted by: Joel Buckley

Due to Kent's passing, his sister will be receiving the money raised, where she will pass it on to the kids. All money still goes to them finding a home, and trying to adjust to not having a father anymore.

Thanks again for all your donations,
