Canada Challenge Update: Introducing Matt
Well, time is ticking and we have about 7 months to go. The support crew is being finalised and we are planning a team meeting in the next few weeks to lock in some details. This month, let us introduce Matt...
Kirsten and I have been involved with Eagles Wings over the last couple of years. Kirsten cycled in the 2016 NZ Challenge for Change ride as a team 20 rider, and I was on the support crew, filming throughout the week (which included capturing the awesome NZ scenery by drone!).
We have been encouraged and blessed to be a part of this great cause and we look forward to ways we can support and contribute in the years to come.
I am super excited to be able to participate in the media team for the Canada Challenge in 2018! Even though I’m not sitting on the bike in pain, I’m keen to be one of the links in the chain, hoping to make a difference in the lives of the students at Eagles Wings.
To say that I love coffee would be an understatement! We in the developed world spend a LOT of money on it each week, so can I encourage you to reduce or even not buy those coffees for a period of time and put that money aside for a better cause...? Why not make a coffee before you leave home? This is one way we can all help - I know I feel challenged already!
[Cutting back just 2 x $4.50 coffees per week over the next 7 months = $252 in #simplicitysavings]
The funds raised from this challenge will go towards the Further Education program at Eagles Wings, assisting graduating students move to tertiary or trade qualifications.
