Russell has completed Tour Aotearoa 2016, a 3,000 cycle from Cape Reinga to Bluff through the month of March. The self-funded journey was on trails and unsealed roads and was entirely unassisted meaning Russell carried everything on his trusty Avanti mountain bike, including a tent, tools and cooking equipment.
Russell’s adventure was as an opportunity to fundraise for KidsCan New Zealand who work with disadvantaged kids and low-decile schools to provide the basic things most of us take for granted – shoes, rain jackets, lunches. The route passed through a number of the low-decile schools supported by KidsCan and Russell visited some of these schools to see first-hand the difference KidsCan is making in the community.
Russell would really appreciate your support for this worthwhile charity. He has setup a givealittle page to enable donations with every dollar going direct to KidsCan: https://givealittle.co.nz/fundraiser/adamandrusselltouraotearoa
