Two Volunteer Firemen are cycling from Cape Reinga to Bluff in support of 'I Am Hope', the youth and community-focused support group.
Mike Carol and Tim Dowden, two Volunteer Firemen from Kawakawa Bay have decided to take on the awesome challenge of cycling from Cape Reinga to Bluff through the Bi-annual Tour Aotearoa, a self-supported 3,000 km brevet. A brevet is not a race. It is a ride following a set course, via 30 photo checkpoints, which must be completed between 10 and 30 days – no more and no less.
As individuals in a closely-knit community, we decided that this was our opportunity to help and support a growing nationwide issue and charity. The charity 'I Am Hope' is doing their best to help and support Kiwi kids facing mental health challenges, providing support, counseling, and awareness when they most urgently need it.
Life challenges come in many different forms, some are dealt to us throughout our lives, some are a result of decisions we make along the way, some can be managed alone, but most are more manageable by having help and support from caring individuals. organizations and communities.
100% of the money received through this page will be going to the 'I Am Hope' charity.
Special thanks must go to Thomsons ITM Building Supplies, Revelate Designs - Cyclewerks and friends and family for their help and support over the many months of preparation and training.
As Volunteer Firemen we come in touch with youth that haven't been fortunate enough to have adequate help and support needed to get them through the issues that they are unable to resolve by themselves.
