K2 Cycle Challenge

By Mat Tolhurst

We are fundraising for Ronald McDonald House!

I've created this page because I want to make a difference. I'm inspired by the work of Ronald McDonald House Charities New Zealand and wanted to support them by raising money. Please help me help them by giving whatever you can using the 'Give Now' button. The more people that know about Ronald McDonald House Charities New Zealand, the greater their impact, so please also spread the word by sharing my page with your friends and family.

The K2 cycle race is the toughest cycling event in the Southern Hemisphere however families at the Ronald McDonald House are facing an even bigger challenge with their children in hospital. PLEASE DONATE to this great charity.

Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!
