"After teaching snowboarding in Canada for 2 months and having my beard both, scare kids as well as freeze and get caught in my jacket zip, I have decided to shave it off. I have had a few cases of cancer in my family where we have had all positive results. To put it simply, I want to help others have the same positives results that me and my family have received by shaving my beard of 2 years off for a great cause. Any funds given will go toward helping fight child cancer. I hope you will join in helping me by donating to this fund"

On the 30th October 2018 the children from Whenuakura Primary School ran a Halloween fundraiser for REACH. It was a day filled with spooky and fun challenges. They raised $58.10, well done kids!
Whenuakura Primary School, South Taranaki ran a "Gold Head Day" fundraiser and raised $73.00. The junior class organised this and were very proud of their efforts. They are a two classroom rural school.
Whenuakura Primary School had a second fundraiser and worked very hard selling $1 bags of hokey pokey to raise funds for REACH. They're a class of 21 children and sold 177 bags full of gold lollies to their friends and family. They came up with the idea after having a gold head day a few weeks before. Gold is REACH's colour so they decided to make and sell hokey pokey. Here is a photo of the children counting 5 pieces into each bag.
Amount Raised - $1,752.93
"7 years ago I almost died from a rare illness. At the time I said my perspective in life was changing but turned out to be just words. Nothing had really changed. I still eat and drink what I want, do very little exercise and sit on the couch watching telly most nights.
I have did something that I should have done years ago but have been advised not to do. But sod it I am still going ahead with it. I have entered City to Surf in Sydney - Sunday 13th August. This is only 14k but to me this will be massive.
My illness has had a long lasting effect on my bones and blood pressure which is the big concern......
I know this is not going to be easy but there are so many people in a much worse space than I am. No matter if I run 14k or walk 14k I will do it"
