Gary's cycling for a cause By MELISSA KINEALY Cycling for a cause: Hospice South Auckland chief executive Gary Sturgess is taking on the Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge to raise funds for the New Zealand Down Syndrome Association. Photo: JASON DORDAY It s out of the office and on to the bike for doting grandfather Gary Sturgess. Hospice South Auckland s chief executive has been out on two wheels racking up the mileage in preparation for the Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge. Gary s got until November 27 to get up to speed and he s doing it all to fundraise for an association that s close to his heart. His 16-year-old granddaughter Georgia has Down syndrome and he wants to give something back to the organisation that supports affected families. Since Georgia was born, both Gary and his wife Valerie have supported other grandparents through the association and shared their experiences. It s not a bad thing to have a Down s baby -- it s quite a special thing, Gary says. Georgia goes to a mainstream school, is involved in a dance musical and is a competitive swimmer. She s just a kid growing up. Gary will cycle 160km alongside daughter Tania, Georgia s mum, and all the money raised will go to the Down Syndrome Association. It ll be a close-knit affair with Valerie and friends also taking part, aiming to raise $1000 each for the cause. See www.everydayhero.co.nz/ gary_sturgess to make an online donation. Down syndrome is a lifelong condition that causes delays in learning and development and occurs because cells contain an extra chromosome number 21. In New Zealand one baby in about 1000 is born with Down syn- drome.
