Tear Fund poverty cycle challenge

TEAR Fund is calling for Auckland businesses to step up and do their bit to raise funds for at-risk Auckland youth and children in Nepal, India and Ethiopia.

The Poverty Cycle Challenge will pit teams of five against each other to complete five laps of a 20km road circuit at the Tipapa Events Centre in Clevedon.

Endorsed by Triathlon NZ and Bike NZ, The Poverty Cycle Challenge aims to raise $200,000 on September 15.

New Zealand businesses already on board include Ricoh and Unlimited Potential.
