Kieran is riding over 500kms across the South Island in support of kiwis who are affected by neuroendocrine (NET) cancer.
"On 10th April 2021, I will be cycling more than 520k over 7 days from Glenorchy to Wellington to raise awareness and funds for Unicorn Foundation which is a registered charity dedicated to supporting those affected by Neuroendocrine Tumours (NET Cancer). This won't be an easy ride for me but is nothing compared to the pain and suffering that Neuroendocrine Tumour patients are currently forced to go through on a daily basis.
A couple of years ago I lost my father to cancer. That was an incredibly painful experience to go through but I was glad I could be with my father during this time. Among a long list of things, your donations will go towards NET nurse services that educate and support patients and the NET cancer community, lobbying for funding for further treatment options to become available to NZ neuroendocrine patients, and supporting vital clinical research.
To donate please click on green Donate Now button. All donations will be eligible for a tax rebate. Every donation helps, no matter how small. Thank you very much for your generosity."
