    We only have two days to go in the Tour of NZ and our riders have now cycled over 600 km.

    It was huge day today, and it started in one of NZ’s most beautiful places just outside the Chateau, in the Tongariro district. It was extremely cold, especially when the intense wind gusts pushed them around but each rider gave it all and made it over the finish line. Our young gun Matt Noland taking out first place for a 2nd time was also a highlight. The determination to complete this challenge along with the camaraderie amongst the team has been incredible to witness and I feel so blessed to be a part of it.

    We have a few photos up on our Facebook page, head to:

    Hi everyone,

    A quick update to let you know all the amazing Unicorn riders set off from Cape Reinga early this morning. It was a long ride with lots of hills but they all went really well. I can report there were lots of smiles all around when they crossed the finish line. This photo is taken at the Cape Reinga lighthouse just before they set off. Such an amazing bunch of people all helping Unicorn Foundation NZ. Please keep checking in with us for more updates or follow us on Facebook to see more photos.

    Less than a week to go before we start on this epic journey! So much support and encouragement from some wonderful people, it is hugely appreciated. We are trying to stay focussed on our training and the road ahead, and on our goal to raise as much as we can to make the NET scan a reality in New Zealand so that Kiwis with neuroendocrine cancer can access the right test at the right time to help them on their journey.

    Thanks to everyone for your fantastic support, please spread the word!

    Best wishes,
