The New Zealand Fire Service is proud to be hosting Canadian Firefighter and cancer survivor Rudy Pospisil while he cycles the length of the country raising funds for Leukaemia & Blood Cancer New Zealand.
Rudy is completing a circumnavigation of the earth and his travels now bring him here to NZ.
Rudy has already set a new world-record climb up the steepest street on Earth, Baldwin Street in Dunedin, in 3:49:24.
"It was the hardest physical thing I have done in my entire life, ever," said Rudy.
The Baldwin Street challenge will now be an annual cancer charity event.
You can read more about Rudy's journey at www.firefightercycle.com and in our upcoming edition of Ignite. http://www.fire.org.nz/Me…/Ignite-magazine/Pages/Ignite.html
