8,000 People a year dead. Gone. Just like that.

Please donate even a few $$ to help me in the FIGHT AGAINST CANCER as I participate in the Hawkes Bay Relay For Life.

8,000 New Zealanders die of cancer related diseases each year! I'm determined and committed to reducing that statistic - but I need your help.

Relay For Life is a 24 hour team event that raises funds for the Cancer Society of New Zealand. I'm part of a team that will walk/run around a track for 24 hours. As well as taking part my goal is to help raise as much as possible towards our teams $5,000 target for my local Cancer Society.

I am making a financial and physical commitment to this event - and challenge you to match my commitment by sponsoring me. During February and March 2008 the Cancer Society is staging 13 Relay For Life events from Auckland in the north to Invercargill in the south. I will be part of the Gen-i Knights Team relaying at Taueha Reserve, Guppy Road, Taradale, Napier.

Spread the word - please forward this link to your friends (and enemies!) so that the Cancer Society of New Zealand really benefits from my efforts.

To make your donation you can either:

Visit my fundraising web page and pay securely by credit card at http://www.fundraiseonline.co.nz/relayforlife/
Credit card donations go directly to the Cancer Society. Your name will appear in lights here too!


Donate money (via cash or cheque) directly to me (Courier it signature required to me – address below, or in Hawkes Bay, call or email and I will come and pick it up)

Thanks for your support.
