On Sunday 15 October, Counties Honda and Bayleys Counties will get their motors running for a good cause.
They’ve joined forces to arrange a charity motorcycle ride for the Make-A-Wish charity.
The charity grant wishes for children facing life threatening illnesses, giving hope, strength and joy, at a difficult time in their lives. Since inception, Make-A-Wish have granted over 2000 wishes.
Max Mobley from Counties Honda said, that with lots of new motorcyclists in the area, they were keen to start organising a ride community. “We wanted to organise a group ride and thought, let’s make it worth doing and make it a charity ride.”
Max has been tasked with organising the charity ride route. The finalised route will see riders head east through Tahuna and Paeroa and through to Whangamata. A lunch stop at Whangamata is planned and riders will then loop back to Pukekohe via Kopu.
There’s a personal connection for Max, as he has a friend with a son battling leukaemia.
“This feels like a cool way to bring some happiness to kids, who are experiencing a not so happy time in their lives. Money we raise through the charity ride, will make a difference,” said Max.
Riders keen to join the charity ride, can register on Counties Honda Motorcycles’ Facebook page www.facebook.com/Counties.Honda.Pukekohe

More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
