Holden Swaps Engine for Pedal Power
18 Sep, 2014

Holden New Zealand is swapping the technology and comfort of their cars to support the largest cycleevent in the country.


The popular iconic car brand has teamed up with the Contact Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge and More FM and will participate in the Holden Corporate Challenge on November 29.


Holden has also challenged all Holden dealerships around the country along with other Corporate entities to join the cycle challenge and ride their bikes for health and fitness, corporate pride and at the same time raise money for the event charity, Heart Kids.


Every participant will be able to join the battle to help raise much needed funds for kids who were born with a congenital heart defect or children who have suffered a heart defect caused by illnesses such as Rheumatic Fever. Some of these babies face life-saving open heart surgery within the first few days of life and for many, the battle is never over.


Holden sponsorship manager, Julie Southall, says getting involved in the corporate challenge has many positives including support for kids in need.


“Money raised will go to children who are challenged by difficulties beyond their control so we are challenging Holden dealerships and Corporates nationwide to get their teams together to join the cycle challenge and raise money for Heart Kids,” Ms Southall said.


“The Holden Corporate Challenge could be the tonic to get a team motivated and engaged and pedalling towards some great results in the 38th annual Contact Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge.”


“There are loads of prizes to be won along with achance to go into the draw to win regular office coffee shouts plus hospitality in Holden’s corporate facility on event day.”


Event Director, Kay Brake, is encouraged by the great support the event receives from corporate businesses.


“It’s an experience that brings out a healthy competitiveness whether you’re a regular cyclist or not. Eight months on from last year’s event, teams are still buzzing about their experience with the likes of Taupo’s Quality Print back in force with an even larger team this year,” said Mrs. Brake.
