-Next - Southern Scooter Challenge is 2021
The Scooter Challenge is an endurance ride, from the sea to mountains in New Zealand’s heartland. From windswept Stirling Point in Bluff to the tourist Mecca and alpine resort of Queenstown. A journey of 220 kilometers to raise funds for The PlaceMakers Foundation which this year we will be supporting Prostate Cancer Southland and Hospice Southland.
The Challenge is in no way a race – it’s an awareness-raising and fundraising event for the survivors, families of those with cancer and those committed to making a difference. By raising funds and awareness for Prostate Cancer Southland and Hospice Southland we are helping them continue their great work.
2019 is the 6th time running of the PlaceMakers Scooter Challenge; the next ride will be in 2021. (making the event every 2nd year).
The Challenge is not for the fainthearted, this is not a relaxing day out, it is designed to be the coldest, longest, hardest, most grueling and uncomfortable test of endurance on a city scooter to raise money and awareness for the Prostate Cancer Foundation and Hospice Southland.
Over 600 New Zealand men die from prostate cancer every year. Incredibly prostate cancer is one of the most easily diagnosed and treatable cancers, yet despite this more people die of prostate cancer than any other cancer.
Hospice Southland provides specialist palliative care to those with a life-limiting illness in Southland and the Wakatipu Basin, free charge, and ideally in their setting of choice.
Registrations will be caped at x100 scooters this year and you can register yourself or your team from 1st June 2019.
So lets do our bit, grab a scooter, lodge your entry, get fundraising and do your bit to help fight New Zealand’s deadliest cancer.
All funds raised go to the:
