Paul is cycling over 500kms across the South Island in support of kiwis who are affected by neuroendocrine (NET) cancer.
Living and working in the Hawkes Bay for the last 25 years, I am both a recreational and competitive cyclist racing most weekends in our local Ramblers Cycling Club. This will be my second Tour of New Zealand having participated in the North Island leg several years ago. I will be cycling as part of the Dawn Breakers team, 6 guys and 2 support, who are all passionate about the sport and still fortunate enough to be able to combine this passion with our nominated charity.
For me, I have chosen Unicorn Foundation. At my workplace there are individuals less fortunate than myself who are bravely undergoing cancer treatment, my own family is no different and I am sure for those that do read this short introduction you will all have similar and familiar stories of people, families that you can relate to. Nursing, treatment and support are often taken for granted; however, the reality is, without Unicorn Foundation that level of support will be less for neuroendocrine cancer patients in NZ.
I ask for your support and follow my 505km journey. Albeit small, we can make a difference and what better way to do this than on a bike supporting the Tour of NZ.
Funds raised will contribute towards supporting clinical research, lobbying for funding and further treatment options to become available to NZ neuroendocrine patients, NET nurse services and building and supporting the NET cancer community.
Denys takes first place! 19 April 2021
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.
