Motorcycle from NZ to Ireland for the IHC!

$9,218 donated
Given by 44 generous donors in around 5 months

Riding to raise a minimum of $10/mile ridden around the world on my motorcycle. 😯 Click social links below! Thanks for your support. ✌️


At the age of two, my Uncle Peter fell ill with meningitis and was left mentally disabled for the rest of his life. He passed away at the age of 71 in 2015. Along with my grandparents, the IHC looked after him for the majority of his life.

I am riding 30,000 miles (50,000km) from Auckland New Zealand to Cork Ireland and aim to raise a minimum of $10/mile (NZD $300,000) to give back to the wonderful, hard-working people at the IHC and the residents they care for. This will allow the IHC to further help the members of society like my Uncle Pete to live meaningful lives.

If you would like a YouTube shout-out from some intrepid place around the world please let me know in your donation details.
