$5,531 of $4,000 goal
Given by 66 generous donors in 12 weeks

Cycling the length of Aotearoa to fundraise for I Am Hope Foundation.


Tour Aotearoa is a challenge I have always wanted to undertake and I AM HOPE is a cause I believe in. On Sunday 18th February 2024 I will begin cycling the length of Aotearoa. Day one starts in Cape Reinga and 3000km and 26 days later I will reach Bluff carrying all my gear with me. I have been training and preparing for this challenge for the last year and I am super excited for this adventure.

Young people can struggle with distressing self-talk and overthinking, leaving them feeling isolated and alone. I AM HOPE have offered free counselling and education for the past 10 years. They have spoken and listened to over 300,000 kids in schools and communities throughout New Zealand. I truly believe that supporting this charity will make a difference. Raising money for this cause will add extra inspiration for me along the way and I hope to make a difference.

TA Day 26 - Lumsden to Bluff   14 March 2024

The final day of Tour Aotearoa! A nice, flat and easy terrain to Bluff. It felt quite emotional and slightly surreal to pedal the last few kilometers. I just want to say huge thank you to everyone who shared their support and best wishes with me along the way. I couldn't of done it without you all ❤️ I'm truly humbled to have exceeded my fundraising target. I know this will make a huge difference to young people around Aotearoa.

I swell with pride when realise my boy has married a woman with such grit, determination, drive and ambition. Not only is she an intellectual giant, but also a physical powerhouse of inestimable talent. I’d give more but I’m a bit scint just now 👍🏻🥴
