Twenty cars are destined to cover 2770 kilometres in 11 days, all in the name of charity.
Organised annually by the Rotary Club of Half Moon Bay, entrants will navigate New Zealand’s less travelled roads between Auckland and Bluff with other likeminded adventurers.
The challenge? To buy a 4-door car for less than $1000 that’s reliable enough to make the trip.
Last year, the event raised $12,000 each for Alzheimers New Zealand and the HopeWorks Foundation. But co-organiser Ian Thomsen believes this year’s event will pip that.
“It’s an incredible fun event that encourages fellowship and camaraderie, all in the name of helping out our fellow Kiwis.”
Also jumping on board is Miss Auckland, Michelle Isemonger.
As an avid engine-head and a charity worker who is hugely supportive of the cause, Michelle will get the event off to a racing start on March 29 at Bucklands Beach in Auckland.
Entrants will arrive in Bluff, Invercargill on April 8.
Cars will also be auctioned the following day to raise money, and a Give a Little page has been launched.
“The more generous you are to help us raise money for this year’s event, the better,” Ian says.
Alzheimers NZ represent people affected by dementia at a national level by raising awareness of dementia, providing information and resources for people affected by dementia, advocating for high quality services for people affected by dementia, and promoting research about prevention, treatment, cure and care of people affected by dementia.
HopeWorks Foundation provides information and assistance for those who have suffered neurological disorders and diseases.
