About me

Hi. I’m riding the South Island tour this year, again supporting Tearfund's programs working against human trafficking. In 2015 I rode the North Island tour for Tearfund.
I would really love you to sponsor my ride with all funds going to Tearfund. I am covering all the costs of my ride so everything you give goes to Tearfund.
700Kms over 7 days will mean I am working very hard for every dollar you commit.
An important part of Tearfund’s programs involves investigation and criminal prosecution of the perpetrators of human trafficking to shut down this abhorrent trade in human lives.
Please encourage me with your support and give generously.

"I don't believe in Peter Pan, Frankenstein or Superman; All I wanna do is bicycle, bicycle, bicycle" Freddie Mercury, Queen, 1978

Chosen charity

tearfund

Tearfund. Cycle for Tearfund and you will be joining a community on the move for freedom! Tearfund is a registered charity committed to the cycling space. Child sex trafficking is a scourge devastating an estimated 4.5 million children and shattering vulnerable communities around the world. This is called modern day slavery due to its scale and growth and it needs all of our attention and action.
Sex slavery generates an estimated US$100 billion for criminal networks every year, according to the International Labour Organisation (ILO). By joining Tearfund you will join the fight for freedom helping our full circle approach bringing: prevention/protection, rescue and prosecution and of course restoration and empowerment. Last year our partner Nvader, a 100% Kiwi led team, were responsible for over 50% of Thailand's human trafficking convictions. You'll be supporting an effective team bringing results and changing lives and you'll get to meet Ralph Simpson a Kiwi lawyer who now leads the Nvader team as country director.
