Ron Towner aged 89 wants to raise as much as he can to support the Westpac Rescue helicopter before turning 90 on the 22nd July.
He plans to do this by walking round the block every day for at least 90 days. Ron had a stroke a couple of years ago, which has led to long term complications for movement. He also has a degenerative lung condition so walking is very hard some days.
Originally from the UK Ron wants to give something back to the New Zealand community as he and his wife Val have loved every day they have spent in their adopted country.
