Riding the length of the North Island to raise funds and awareness for Unicorn Foundation NZ


Having lost a brother to cancer 22 years ago and more recently watching my son and a good friend both successfully battle cancer, it is evident that the recent advances in treatment have been significant.

This is in no small part due to the significant amount of fundraising that is done to assist research and the investment into equipment required. Which is why I have decided to help make a difference by fundraising for the Unicorn Foundation NZ who support patients with Neuroendocrine Cancer, (NET Cancer). We are fundraising to help bring a much needed specialised NET Scan to NZ.

To do this, I am taking part in the Tour of NZ in April and will be riding the length of the North Island, approximately 100k per day for 7 days!

I am looking forward to sharing this experience with my son and my friends and hope that you can support our efforts by donating to help make a difference to the thousands of kiwis affected by NET Cancer.

Thank you for your support, Gary

Unicorns have now cycled over 600 km !  16 April 2015

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:
