Fundraising for Cancer Research


I’m not usually one to tell people where to put their money (although I will always endorse the ‘Buy Jared an Audi before he dies’ cause that seems to have fallen on deaf ears), but I have a friend who is going to cycle in the Conquer Cancer bike ride in November, and this actually IS a good place to put your money.

The money raised goes towards the NZ Cancer Society and cancer research in New Zealand. There are many charities and causes around in life that are worthy of attention, money, and time, but this one is obviously particularly close to home. The ride consists of 200 kilometres and Brianna Alford, a nurse who I work with is looking to fundraise as much as possible for it. When she was initially talking to me she was worried about raising the necessary minimum $2500 dollars to compete in it…. the 200km bit was the least of her worries. So I want to endorse her effort and her inverse-to-normal logic worries about riding in this race!

Henceforth I would like to advise all readers of this blog to give to this worthy cause. You donate by clicking HERE and help people like me conquer cancer*.

*Disclaimer: I probably will not actually conquer cancer, but you might should you be diagnosed further down the track and benefit from such research. 🙂

    Thanks for this post Jared, I do appreciate your humour. As a South Islander I probably won’t take up this particualr challenge although as a two time survivor (to date) I may be resting on my laurels and a false sense of security etc.Warm wishes, julie

    Sorry I can’t help with the Audi but have donated. Keep up the epic fight.
