Harawira Rides For Life

Harawira Rides For Life


Hone Harawira is set to ride in the Riders Against Teenage Suicide (RATS) Green ribbon campaign this Friday from Kaikohe to Opotiki.

“Our rangatahi are our future leaders and backbone of this country. I’ve supported this initiative since the first ride in January last year and I will continue to support it until the message gets through to our kids that they are not alone.” Harawira says.

“We're losing generations to youth suicide in our communities and it’s about time we become more proactive as adults, parents, mums and dads. It’s not ok to just do nothing and think it won’t affect my whānau”

Over 100 riders are expected to participate starting on Friday in Kaikohe and calling in to Huntly, Ngaruawahia, Rotorua and ending in Opotiki on Saturday.

Mana Waiariki candidate Annette Sykes will join the ride from Rotorua to Opotiki in support of a cause that has touched members of her whanau and also to honour a dedicated Mana member of her campaign team, Dixie Hona who was tragically killed during a ride in November last year.
