Help an old banger raise

$10,000

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 2023 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 provide vital information and advocacy for generous and selfless family carers. Carers need support to safeguard their own physical and mental wellbeing and address financial barriers when caring for their loved ones with MS.

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, from Auckland to Bluff, on roads less travelled via several iconic regions. 

Departing Auckland on 21st March, the rally will arrive in Bluff on 1st April where the bangers will be auctioned. Proceeds will be donated to charities the club supports, including Multiple Sclerosis NZHopeworks NZ and Regional MS Societies the rally meets en-route.

The difference you could make?

Over 4,130 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.

Knowledge is Power

Your support will help us shine a light on the mental, physical and financial impacts that MS has on family carers.

Our 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.

Thanks to the amazing car wrap job provided by ABC Photosigns, our banger now looks amazing. 

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!

In 2021, this event raised over $56,000 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.

THANK YOU

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 to all our sponsors for joining us to make a difference, supporting us on our journey.
