Launched by our CEO Wilf Sweetland in 2015, FireFlies Antipodes, the Southern Hemisphere’s answer to The FireFlies, is a group of cyclists riding with their hearts to beat Blood Cancer. Wilf brought to Australia and New Zealand with riders completing the inaugural tour from Christchurch to Queenstown in February 2015.
Its second tour took place from 16 to 26 March 2017. The ride covered 1,000km+ over seven gruelling days around Tasmania. We are currently planning a third tour that’ll take place in New Zealand in 2019.
Riding with the spirit and motto ‘For Those Who Suffer, We Ride’ the tour aims to raise AUD50,000 for The Snowdome Foundation and their own fights against Blood Cancers.
