Feb 11th, 2015: Wayne Biggs who was diagnosed with Lymphoma and is told he had months to live is riding across South Island, New Zealand in a noble and brave gesture. The ride, aptly named ‘Tiny Wheels for a Giant Cause’, aims to increase awareness and raise money for Leukaemia and Blood Cancer in New Zealand.

This father of two boys in his orange T-shirt and orange Vespa  GTS reached Walter Peak, Otago yesterday.

Michael Huddleston a friend who started with Biggs on the trip had to drop off due to an unfortunate accident.

Please visit the fundraising page – http://www.leukaemia.org.nz/view_event_profile/2713 – if you wish to donate to Leukaemia & Blood Cancer, New Zealand.
