Riding in the Wattyl Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge?

Think you’ll need a little extra motivation to ride up Hatepe Hill in November’s Wattyl Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge? Well read on because Heart Children New Zealand, the official charity of this fabulous event, can give you an extra incentive for the climb ahead. Her name is Charlotte.

Charlotte is a happy, bubbly five year old who loves chocolate and riding her bike. She looks just like any other kid her age, but the scar that runs down the centre of her small chest tells a different story. Although Charlotte has only just started school, she’s already had two open heart surgeries. Every day Charlotte and her family live with the knowledge that there will be more surgery to follow.

12 babies are born every week with a congenital heart defect in New Zealand.

As a rider of the Wattyl Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge you can make a difference in the lives of children like Charlotte by gaining sponsorship of your ride.

So come on. There’s still time. It takes a matter of minutes to set up a web page and send the link to your friends, family and colleagues. Visit or and click on the link and you’re on your way. Then simply email the web page link to friends, family and work colleagues for sponsorship. You’ll know as you pedal around Lake Taupo, it’ll be all worth it, for every kilometre you ride, is just that little bit more for kids like Charlotte.

Heart Children New Zealand believes no child should face a heart condition alone. With your help we can continue to provide emotional support, practical assistance, equipment, information, education, advocacy and social affiliation to children with heart conditions and their families in the hospital environment and when they return home.

We look forward to meeting you in Taupo and cheering you on around the Lake. And remember when you’re pedaling up Hatepe Hill, you’ll be riding for kids like Charlotte. It’s bound to help.
