CanTeen members are preparing to go hard at The Crank, a national fundraising event for CanTeen run in conjunction with Les Mills, held at the Auckland Waterfront on August 29.

Members need to fight exhaustion and jelly legs for an hour each during the six-hour event.

"It's one last final call to go to our fundraising pages. If everyone gives a little it all adds up to a lot," youth worker Kat Angelo said.

A team of six Taranaki riders will share the bike spurred by instructors from Les Mills, which Angelo said will make the event intense.

The Taranaki team, called Naki Hardcore Crew, is sponsored by Cityfitness.

Members are volunteer Kate Seed, sibling member Emily-Rose Longstaff, patient member Joshua McCulloch-Nathan, bereaved sibling member Fenella Andrews, volunteer Connor Arbuckle and Angelo.

They're aiming to raise $200 each before the event and raise at least $1000 as a team.

"Each of us have our own fundraising pages," she said. "All of that money goes into the national pool then it gets evenly distributed to the different regions."

To donate visit thecrank.co.nz.

CanTeen is on the lookout for people willing to volunteer for its street appeal in September. Contact Kat Angelo on 021 749 552.
