Team Unicorn are riding over 500kms across the South Island in support of kiwis who are affected by neuroendocrine (NET) cancer.
This April, a dedicated team of cyclists will embark on the ride of a lifetime, all in support of kiwis in New Zealand affected by Neuroendocrine (NET) cancer.
The Tour of New Zealand will see the riders cycle over 500 kilometres across some of New Zealand's most stunning, but challenging terrain over 8 days. From Glenorchy to Wellington, our team will experience an adventure of a lifetime and will need your support along the way!
The first time Unicorn Foundation NZ entered the TONZ in 2011, the team helped to raise enough money to establish a specialised PET-CT Scanner for the first time in New Zealand, which also assists Prostate cancer patients. This equipment for many kiwis was life-changing and life-saving.
Funds raised will contribute towards supporting clinical research, lobbying for funding and further treatment options to become available to NZ neuroendocrine patients, NET nurse services and building and supporting the NET cancer community.

We weren't the biggest team on the Tour of NZ, but definitely a strong and dedicated team!
Congratulations Denys on the first place position! You were a well deserving category winner (as were all the category winners!) Also congrats to Kieran for his 4th place in individual men!
We hope our Unicorn Team have all had a well deserved rest over the weekend and enjoyed reflecting on the epic challenge you've just conquered!
