Day 22 learning in the jump park 9 August 2020
Today marks day 22 of 40 days and Lochie was super proud of himself for getting some air on the jumps, I asked Lochie the other day how much he wants to raise for the Cancer Society he said a trillion dollars, I asked why do you want to raise that much because that’s a lot of money he replied with so I can help lots of Mum’s and Dad’s

Half way there 20 days done 2 August 2020
Well today marks day 20, Lochie had another awesome weekend skiing at Cardrona and catching up with more of his mates from the Cardrona crew, I asked Lochie what’s been the best bit so far he said meeting new friends if you see him about make sure you come and say hi.
The highlight of his weekend was meeting his favourite NZ skier Nico Porteous, it made his day Lochie was amped after catching up with him.
