James' TONZ Ride for NET Cancer

$3,685 of $5,000 goal
Given by 42 generous donors in around 4 months

James is cycling over 500kms across the South Island in support of kiwis who are affected by neuroendocrine (NET) cancer.


I am an ex-British Army Officer and for the 30 years I've lived in New Zealand have been a serial entrepreneur. By April I will have turned 60 and jointly own my 'last' business, a BOP focussed Exhibition and Event Hire company. My wife Margie was at University with Malcolm Legget (Unicorn Foundation NZ board member and NET cancer patient) and his wife Carrie Hobson, who are firm friends.

I have enjoyed cycling for some years as a weekend warrior and was keen to challenge myself for a worthy cause and the Tour of NZ 2021 fitted the bill perfectly. Covid-19 has hit our business hard with the benefit of freeing up time to spend in the saddle so I don't drag too badly behind my fellow athletes.

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!

Many thanks for the donations that are continuing to come in.
