Two Tauranga mums are showing their super skills by hitching rides to Queenstown with just $10 in their pocket.
Jodi Nicols and Stacey Priscott have named themselves the Super Mums in their efforts to raise money for charity Cure Kids as part of an Accor Hotels $10 Queenstown Challenge.
The challenge will be held over three days, and teams taking part have to find their way to the town in "Amazing Race" style, dressed in costumes, with only $10 to spend.
The Super Mums said on their online fundraising page that between them they had five children "so Cure Kids is a charity close to our hearts".
"We are fortunate enough to have healthy children, but there are many children living in New Zealand who aren't so we want to raise as much money as we can to support Cure Kids," they stated.
Cure Kids provides accommodation each night, and dinner and breakfast each day. The route is kept top secret, as are the challenges along the way to test the brains, bodies, and creativity of the teams.
"From bungee jumping to busking to hitchhiking, we will be challenged like never before. It's action-packed and utterly memorable and it's for a very important cause - funding vital medical research into life-threatening illnesses that affect children", the Super Mums stated.
