Support Joel and Shaun as they strive to take home the Teams Challenge Trophy - all in the name of raising funds for local charities!
Brother's Joel and Shaun are the second team to enter the teams challenge. Usually competing against each other, this is a chance for the two of them to team up while supporting some great charities (although we're sure there will be some bragging rights for the best placings in their events......).
Joel, from Christchurch, is surprisingly still keen to take on the bike leg in spite of a traumatic "downstairs" handlebar accident. Although he may be putting on a pair of training wheels to reduce the chances of a fall!
Shaun, from Ashburton, is anchoring the run leg, bringing some pedigree after competing in the Abel Tasman Coastal Classic. He also tends to favour some training wheels (or the kids pram as he calls it), so his balance may be a bit off running by himself.
Get in behind the brothers and spot some sponsorship. Every dollar raised over $250 gives the team a 1 second advantage, so get donating and give them a head start!!!
The Waimate Rotary Club runs the Whitehorse Challenge, with teams raising funds for local and regional charities, while testing their athletic skills!
All funds raised go towards these great local charities; St John Waimate, Waimate School of Music, Sport Waimate, Centrecare Counselling, Waimate Rotary Club, and the Whitehorse Mountain Bikers Club.
