Form a Team & Help Beat Child Trafficking

TEAR Fund is encouraging kiwis to use their bikes to stop women and children from being trafficked into prostitution.

A child is trafficked around the world every 30 seconds and the average age of a victim is only 12 years old. By getting some mates together to form a team and ride the Poverty Cycle challenge, you can raise money for TEAR Fund’s anti-trafficking work and help combat this injustice.

The Poverty Cycle pits teams of six against each other to complete six laps of a 20km circuit, though Individuals can also enter the challenge and ride two, three or four laps. The challenge attracts prominent athletes such as ten-time winner of Ironman New Zealand, Cameron Brown but if you’re a bit out of shape, don’t worry, you can just ride it if you don’t want to race it.Poverty Cycle 2

The event will be held at 7am on August 29th at the Ti Papa Events Centre in Clevedon, Auckland.
