TEARFUND CALLS KIWIS
Tearfund is calling on Kiwi athletes, schools, businesses, churches and celebrities to join the Poverty Cycle, to break the cycle of poverty for some of the world’s most vulnerable people. The Tearfund Poverty Cycle is a road relay challenge held at Ardmore Airport in Auckland on August 26, and pits teams of six against each other on a scenic 25km circuit. Alternatively, you can ride as an individual or on a stationary bike, or host your own virtual event if you’re unable to make it on the day. Money raised goes towards Tearfund’s work combating human trafficking and exploitation in five countries. The entry fee is $200 which can be fundraised or paid personally, and goes towards a participant’s overall fundraising goal of $800. For more information or to register visit povertycycle.org.nz.
