Can­teen cranks it

Central Leader - - NEWS -

Call­ing all cycling en­thu­si­asts – New Zealand’s big­gest in­door cycling ef­fort for Can­Teen is about to get crank­ing.

The Crank is a mass in­door RPM® cycling event and fundraiser com­ing to The Cloud on Septem­ber 13.

More than 1100 peo­ple took part in 2012 and this year Can­Teen aims to get 1500 cycling and fit­ness en­thu­si­asts, cor­po­rates and sports teams in­volved in the chal­lenge.

About 180 RPM® bikes will fill The Cloud, on Queens Wharf.

Can­Teen’s national mar­ket­ing man­ager Kim­ber­ley Wa­ters says the event will be a fun and chal­leng­ing way to sup­port young peo­ple who are liv­ing with can­cer.

‘‘We en­cour­age any­one who’s up for a bit of hard work and sweat to get in­volved,’’ she says.

Event regis­tra­tion cov­ers the cost to put on the event, so in or­der to raise money for Can­Teen par­tic­i­pants are en­cour­aged to fundraise.

Can­Teen is the only New Zealand peer sup­port or­gan­i­sa­tion for young peo­ple aged 13 to 24 liv­ing with can­cer as a pa­tient, sib­ling or be­reaved sib­ling.

En­tries are now open to take part in the big­gest in­door cycling event this coun­try has ever seen.

The Crank of­fers a 6-hour chal­lenge and 12-hour chal­lenge or you can take part as an in­di­vid­ual.
