Whitehorse "Solo" Challenge - Jack Gibson (The Sweaty Mess)

$1,515 of $250 goal
Given by 16 generous donors in 21 days

Support Jack as he battles the Solo Challenge and helps out Timaru Mental Health Support!!


Jack has just signed up for his first Coast to Coast next year, so the solo challenge is now on, pitting the novice vs the veteran!!

Jack got the bug after the Wanaka Challenge teams event recently. We got to choose between two photos for the page, but felt that this one really showed Jack's dedication to the cause (and competitive spirit), pulling out all the stops to keep the body temp under control on a boiling 33 degree day..........

Jack will take on the 18km run, before jumping straight on the bike for a casual 27km MTB. Deciding to enter 3 days before the race may indicate a mid-week drinking sesh or a carefully tuned preparation campaign........ we'll find out on Sunday!

Jack is throwing his 25% support behind Timaru Mental Health Support and the wonderful work they do for mental health in construction.

So get donating - every $1 raised over $250 gives a 1 second time advantage, as well as a hand up for our great causes!
