The Mates Paddle For Life Event will take place on Friday 2nd March and is a 90km paddle from Porirua to Wellington harbour. This event is to highlight the effects of Cancer on patients, their family and friends and also to highlight mens health to encourage all guys over 40 to have regular health checks.
Tere Kiriau the founder of Avaikinui has bowel cancer that has spread to his liver. This will be his last paddle.
Please check out the web page and view the 5 minute video clip of Tere inviting everyone on board of Mates Paddle for Life to follow us as we plan the paddle and post video diaries in the lead up. For those of you who know Tere, this will make you cry. Hopefully you can come on board and encourage others to donate or contribute towards his last paddle.
