MHXK team are going to 'Razor for a Reason' and help kiwis affected by NET Cancer

Auckland

'Razor for a Reason' will see members of MHXK team razor off either their hair, beard, mo - some have volunteered their eyebrows! These brave souls are stepping up to do this on Wednesday 27th July to show their support to Project Manager Andrew Rose who is living with NET cancer and to help the only charity focused on it - Unicorn Foundation NZ.

Unicorn Foundation NZ is fundraising to improve access to treatment options for NZ patients. Currently many New Zealanders are forced to self-fund and travel to Australia to receive their cancer treatment, personally costing them in excess of $50,000 for each.

The MHXK has 300 people working on this site, from Subbies, Labour hire, Engineers, Quantity surveyors, Design team, Stakeholder management, Traffic Management, Commercial team to Admin support. We have all ethnicities, ages and it is a great place to work.

This is an Alliance combining NZ Transport Agency Fletchers/Beca/Higgins businesses as one project team to deliver better roading for Mangere and better access to the Airport and surrounding businesses.

Andrew Rose is the project manager of this huge project, and is accountable for everything. Andrew has worked for Fletcher Construction Infrastructure for 8 years, and is a great leader. He is also living with Neuroendocrine Cancer, (NET Cancer). He has a brilliant attitude towards fighting this cancer and is an inspiration. He is married with 2 children and is a great role model for the team, his family and anyone living with cancer.

Please support this fundraising event to help Unicorn Foundation NZ and the thousands of kiwis affected by NET Cancer.

Thank you!
