On March 10 I’m cycling from Ruakaka to Wellsford* (the red line below) to help raise funds for Plunket NZ. It is a small part of a Cape Reinga to Bluff fundraising cycle ride The Warehouse are supporting.
Plunket is New Zealand's largest provider of support services for the development, health and wellbeing of children under 5. Plunket works together with families and communities, to ensure the best start for every child.
Whānau āwhina - caring for families.

* I’m also cycling from Wellsford to Ruakaka (the blue line) but that is just to get back to my car! Going via the coast to avoid the state highway traffic and riding up the Brenderwyn Hill (~300m high) twice in a day!

What is Pedal for Plunket?
The Pedal for Plunket relay supports caring for kids in our communities. More than 120 team members from The Warehouse, Plunket and other supporters will take to our roads to cycle the length of New Zealand.
Riders will call into local Warehouse stores to join in-store activities and events as they ride down the country. Check out your local The Warehouse store to see what they have planned to support the riders as they come through and feel free to join in! You can check where our riders are each day along the relay or view the full course map here.
We're supporting connected communities
Significant numbers of New Zealand families and whānau have complex needs and limited access to the basic necessities of life. Plunket and The Warehouse want to ensure all New Zealanders have the opportunity to feel connected within their community. Being connected means having the opportunities and the means for families and whānau to come together within their community to provide a safer, better place for children to grow up.
The 2017 Pedal for Plunket relay supports this connection to our communities by raising funds and providing opportunities for family and whānau to be together in their community.
