Support Rachael, Nigel & Wayne in racing The Mount Monster to fundraise for Unicorn Foundation NZ (Neuroendocrine Cancer NZ)


Support Rachael, Nigel & Wayne in racing The Mount Monster on December 11 & fundraise for Unicorn Foundation NZ (Neuroendocrine Cancer NZ).

We are a group of friends with a passion for the outdoors, all being involved in Surf Lifesaving & members of Maranui Surf Lifesaving Club.

Over a few summer beverages we decided to enter the Mount Monster, New Zealand’s most prestigious Surf Lifesaving event, held in Mount Maunganui. It involves a 12km surf ski, 6km knee board, 5km run, 1.5km swim with a 7m jump off Leisure Island.

The training began ….. Then in August our dear friend Chris passed after a long battle with neuroendocrine (NET) cancer. He loved all things outdoors, doing many endurance races & also being a past member of Maranui SLSC. His passion & drive to get out & enjoy life everyday was & is an inspiration to us. Always with a smile on his face.

To honour Chris & bring awareness to Neuroendocrine Tumours & the work The Unicorn Foundation do, we are raising funds. This will help towards research & patient support.

Thank you for your donations and messages.
