A little rain couldn't stop these cyclists from completing their Christmas challenge!

Thanks to these superstars, there will be some very grateful and excited kids in Haiti on Christmas Day who will now be able to have a hot Christmas meal and a small present this year! Yay! All because these caring kids made over $5,000 with 'The Great Christmas Cycle' – each biking 20km, and some biked 40km!!!

In fact, the riders raised $5,132.80 = (US$3,611.95) which will not only make Christmas Day at COHP School very special for these kids but will also help in other important ways. We will let you know in the new year how the additional money will be used.
"It was fun and adventurous. It felt like a long time but afterwards it was really worth it and we raised quite a lot of money for the kids' Christmas in Haiti."  Alyahna - 8 yrs old. (Cycled 20km from ASB Aquatic Centre to Rabbit Island)
Two thumbs up to the 20 cyclists: Bella, Eliana, Lucca, Alyahna, Jamie, Gabby, Maddie, Imogen, Avalon, Baxter, Logan, Harry, Isaac, Ella, Macs, Thora, Freya, Cole, Liam and Donalee. 

(Apologies to the four riders not pictured above – everyone was too busy cycling to take many photos! A massive effort all round!)

And a big thank you to all our kind sponsors as well as the parents whom helped make it all happen. PLUS, the students in Haiti filmed this video to cheer on the riders! How cool is that?!
