Bikers in Blue Ambassador Ray Woolf MNZM is one of New Zealand’s more well-known entertainers. He was diagnosed with prostate cancer several years ago, picked up during routine blood tests while managing Type 1 diabetes. Ray had surgery in 2012, is now cancer free and encourages other men to be proactive and have regular checks.
The Bikers in Blue motorcycle ride is a symbol of support for the many people who have been affected by prostate cancer. Bikers ditch their traditional black leathers for wacky blue outfits to raise funds to help with prostate cancer research and support those living with the disease. This is a great opportunity for fellow bikers to come together to enjoy a day of fun for a great cause. This September we are calling for all bikers to register and come together in support of Kiwi men. Save the date, full details of this year’s event will be posted here as they are confirmed.
