My Story

Hi, my name is Tim and I am a 13 year old heart kid.
I was born with coactation of the aorta, and when I was 13 days old I had to have open heart surgery to mend my heart. From this surgery I have a 'shark-bite' scar; it runs from my shoulder around and under my arm. I love telling people that i was bitten by an actual shark!

I first took part in the Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge about 6 years ago. I started with the Kids 5km Heart Ride, and now I am about to do my second 40km Quarter Lake ride in November with my family. I have a goal of beating my time of 1 hour 40 minutes from last year, so I am doing lots of training. I am most looking forward to Hatepe Hill, I love going fast!

Please help me support Heart Kids. They have helped me so much through my life, by supporting my parents when I was born to putting on awesome annual camps for heart kids from all around New Zealand. I have been able to meet lots of other kids who have scars just like me.

Thank You
