Hear from our supporters

Dawson Family, Invercargill

"We (me and my two sons aged 15 and 9) brought Lachie’s Laces and proudly wore our laces as we biked the Otago Rail Trail in October last year. Although we never knew Lachie, we wanted to show our support and our bright yellow laces reminded us to celebrate life, live each day fully and be thankful!"

Abbey, Christchurch

“I always admired Lachie’s go-getter spirit, tenacity and bravery; all with a cheeky smile! I was chuffed to carry on his legacy as he joined me, courtesy of his yellow laces, on the Coast to Coast multi-sport race this year. I had two sets of Lachie’s Laces for the 2km sprint start, the bike to kayak transition and the 70km kayak down the Waimakiriri River. I channelled Lachie through the rapids and bound out of my kayak up the steep hill into the last cycle keg. I’m stoked to have Lachie’s Laces joining me again tackling the iconic Coast to Coast ‘Longest Day’ in February next year."

Paula, Hospice

"The hospice team brought Lachie’s Laces to remember the awesome young man we have the privilege of caring for. Heading to McDonalds wearing Lachie’s bright yellow laces to buy Big Macs was a very special moment. Lachie introduced us to Annie’s Fruit Bars, Salted Caramel Macarons and football. Lachie will forever be in my heart."

Clara, Christchurch

"I brought a pair of Lachie’s Laces to wear along with a large group of colleagues at work. Lachie is one of those kids you never forget and who had an effect on you from the moment you met him. Honouring him on September 25th and raising money for other kids facing similar challenges is something I’m very proud to be a part of."

Natalie, Christchurch

"I brought two pairs of Lachie’s Laces for my boys Ben and Hunter. The boys thrashed their laces and wore them daily for months! Lots of people would comment on the boy’s bright laces which in turn would spark a conversation about amazing kids like Lachie that have had to, and are fighting, this courageous battle. Lachie’s Laces are a simple, fun and effective way to support and raise awareness. We can’t wait to get more!"
