Event description

Description

The Ronnie Run is the signature event of the year for the Ulysses North Harbour Club. This year it will be called The Vaughan Nankivell Ride for Ronald McDonald House in memory of its 2015 founder, Vaughan Nankivell who was the previous branch Vice President. Sadly Vaughan lost his battle earlier this year with cancer.

The Ronald McDonald House Charities New Zealand creates and supports programmes that strengthen Kiwi families throughout their children’s medical journeys, ensuring they are better placed to cope and help their children heal.

Each year since 2015 Ulysses North Harbour organises a motorcycle run in aid of charity to raise funds for Ronald McDonald House, which is open to all motorcyclists. A special highlight to this years event will be the appearance of a handful of New Zealand TV stars on their motorcycles, also known as The Dirty Rotten Thespians motorcycle club.

Dirty Rotten Thespians - Our NZ Celebrities

Some of the names you can expect to see amongst the sea of motorcyclists will be Ben Barrington (Dr Drew in Shortland Street) Jared Turner (from The Almighty Johnsons), Peter Elliot (800 Words) and his daughter Lucy Elliot (Shortland Street) as well as the President of The Dirty Rotten Thespians club, Robbie Magasiva (Wentworth). These awesome celebrities are sacrificing their busy schedules to ride alongside hundreds of other New Zealand motorcycle riders to raise funds for Ronald McDonald House.
