Alzheimers Canterbury

Charity Bike ride for Dave on behalf of Alzheimers Canterbury

Dave O'Neil/Alzheimers Canterbury

Dave O'Neil says:

"Time to go for another ride. 28 march in Blenheim have entered the grape ride. Two laps of 101 ks. 202 in total if I can do it. Once again I am looking for support for my favourite charity Alzheimers Canterbury and asking people to sponsor me for each kilometre I ride of the race. Message me and I will e mail you a sponsorship form that you can also ask your friends to enter in to as well. Hopefully I will finish it all before the cut off time. This is my continuing adventure before my dementia."
