Fifty one flights. Eleven hundred steps.

That’s what motivational speaker Ngahihi o te Ra Bidois will be motorvating up tomorrow as one of 20 invited non-firefighter entrants to the annual Firefighters' Race up Auckland’s Skytower.

His motivation is to raise funds for blood cancer research in the memory of his friend and two time world stock car champion Darcy Hudson Jr, who died of cancer in 2017.

"Six people every day get diagnosed with blood cancer in New Zealand and Leukemia Blood Cancer doesn't receive any funding from government for what they do, awesome research and the areas they help people, so for me it was about doing something and being practical in my help towards fundraising," he says.

Ngahihi o te Ra Bidois is in demand around the world for his motivational talks with the theme of ancient wisdom, modern solutions.
