We're fundraising for Tearfund

This year from 10 April to 17 April  I am riding in The Tour of New Zealand to raise money for Tearfund’s fight against child sex trafficking and exploitation.

This involves 600 km of riding South Island roads for eight days. Ascending alpine mountain passes and enduring wet and cold conditions in the West Coast all in an effort to raise funds and awareness for Tearfund.

Tearfund is a worthy cause that works to prevent human trafficking and children being forced into the sex industry. 

It is not okay that children and young women are treated with such disdain.

Trafficking of people should not be a thing!

Yet there it is a thriving criminal enterprise!

4.8 million women and children are trafficked for sex, only 1-2% of victims are ever rescued.

 - please sponsor me so that together we can make a difference-

Thank you to my Sponsors
