No matter which team comes out on top, every one of us will be winners, as science moves forward in the greatest of challenges, finding a cure. We thank each and every one of the team members for donating their time and expertise to make this event possible.

Gardy Bloemers became interested in supporting the Challenge the first time she visited Wellington. 
“On my first ever weekend trip to Wellington about six years ago, I came on the weekend of the Challenge and that was the year Debbie McDonald and Mason Phelps rode a freestyle together,” she said. “It was a fun event and, of course, since then it has grown and grown. In my wealth management practice, I always try to support the things I love and care about, which gives me the opportunity to connect with like-minded people. Cancer has touched me and touches all of us; it’s great to be able to contribute to breast cancer research in this manner.”
