Lew's 3000km self supported Tour Aotearoa bike ride for Kidney Kids

$10,555 of $20,000 goal
Given by 57 generous donors in over a year

I've combined my drive to push myself and my desire to help Kidney Kids. Help me fundraise for this worthwhile cause!


A dear family friend has endured a long journey at Starship going through her 1st transplant at 13 and then the second on about 15 years later. Over the years, we visited her many times and realized what a great job Kidney Kids do for unfortunate children.

Combining my crazy drive to push myself in endurance events and my desire to help this amazing organisation, came the idea to join the Tour Aotearoa 2020 and to raise money for this worthwhile cause!

I have completed some amazing events but this might top them all (not getting any younger)!

My goal is to mountain bike ride from Cape Reinga to Bluff, self supported and 60% off road in 30 days.


I counting on your help and support, every little bit makes a big difference!

Don’t to forget to follow me on Instagram. I will post as often as I can so you can join the journey from the comfort of your couch.
