Help an old banger raise


to improve the lives of those impacted by Multiple Sclerosis in New Zealand.

Support team ‘Keep Smyelin’ as they drive the exciting Bangers to Bluff Rally 2024 to raise awareness for the impact of Multiple Sclerosis (MS) on family carers.

Multiple Sclerosis has a significant impact not only on the person diagnosed but also partners, parents, whanau and children. Help us raise funds to lead the way for excellence in MS care, by providing information, raising awareness and advocacy on national issues which impact the quality of life for all those impacted.

I'd like to add a little extra to help cover fees.

Organised by The Rotary Club of Half Moon Bay, the event sees teams drive a ‘banger’, a car worth less than $2,000, leaving Auckland on 9th April, arriving in Bluff on 20th April, driving roads less travelled via several iconic regions. 

Money is raised through car registrations, sponsorship, donations and auctioning the cars at the end of the event in Invercargill. Proceeds are donated to the event's Masthead Charity, Multiple Sclerosis New Zealand, as well as other charities supported by the Rotary Club of Half Moon Bay, including MS Societies the rally meets on route.

The difference YOU could make?

Over 4,100 people are diagnosed with MS in New Zealand. Your donation will support Multiple Sclerosis NZ to:

    • advocate for the needs of those diagnosed as well as their carers and families, breaking down barriers that impact physical, mental and financial health and well-being.

    • provide nationally consistent information and support for 18 regional member organisations providing services in their local community.

Our sparkling silver banger desperately needs your support to make its way across the country, spreading awareness about Multiple Sclerosis and raising vital funds needed to help those impacted by MS to live well.

Why not grab the opportunity to have your logo on our beautiful banger by sponsoring us?

'Keep Smyelin' consists of our most dedicated volunteers, who are really looking forward to raising awareness about Multiple Sclerosis and the necessary supports those impacted need to live well.

When team member Graham, an ex-competitive cyslist, was diagnosed with Primary Progressive MS, he was told to “Use it or lose it. So, it really was a no-brainer, neurological condition and all, to pursue cycling as my exercise vehicle.”

Donate to support Graham as he cycles ahead of the rally each morning. He'll cycle as far as he can before they catch up with him. Last year this was between 20-40km/day!

MSNZ has been a grateful participant of the rally since 2018, with 2021 being the first year we entered our own banger, driven by volunteer team 'Keep Smyelin'. The awareness, delightful goodwill and advocacy opportunities experienced along the way, always exceeds our expectations.

In 2023, this event raised over $50,000 for MSNZ and Regional MS Societies.

We NEED your support of our banger to raise vital funds and awareness to support those impacted by Multiple Sclerosis in your community.


We express our sincere gratitude to The Rotary Club of Half Moon Bay for giving us the opportunity to be one of the recipient charities selected and for joining us to make a difference, supporting us on our journey.
