Dan and Shiovan are completing the Whitehorse Challenge, a teams challenge run as part of the Whitehorse Big Easy event. Teams have the dual challenge of splitting a 25km mountainbike and 18km mountain run with a fundraising challenge. Teams are required to raise $500 via this page, that will be distributed by the Waimate Rotary Club to local, regional, and national causes, including Kidscan, Centrecare, South Canterbury Hospice, Bushtown, and the Whitehorse Mountainbiking Club (for further track maintenance).

Dan and Schiovan are our first husband and wife team, putting both their bodies and marital strength on the line for a good cause. Dan is no stranger to a bit of uphill work having caught the running bug 3 years ago when he elected for an “easy” first challenge running up the Sky Tower! He apparently finds the guilt of having an event to do really helps get the training done. Schiovan meanwhile is a dedicated road biker (she loves riding round lakes!), whose last attempt at mountain-biking ended up with a trip over the handle bars and a few new shades of black and blue. She decided a charity gig is a good way to get back on the horse so to speak - hopefully it goes better this time! Get some money in their kitty to really motivate the training!

Jump on board and support Dan and Shiovan, or head on over to www.whitehorsebigeasy.co.nz and enter your own team.

Funds will be distributed by the Waimate Rotary Club to local, regional, and national causes, including Kidscan, Centrecare, South Canterbury Hospice, Bushtown, and the Whitehorse Mountainbiking Club (for further track maintenance).
