Morgan wants you to take the biscuit 

Morgan Haakma wants to sell 9000 buckets of biscuits.

Cambridge based wakeboarder Morgan Haakma is helping with a fundraising campaign which aims to raise $200,000.

It’s the second time Morgan has backed the “Show Me the Christmas Cookies” project which supports St. John, KidsCan, The Dyslexia Foundation and the Cookie Time Charitable Trust.

She is using her competitive nature to challenge for the title of Cookie Times best seller by breaking her own sales record, set last year, of 8,303 buckets.

The year she wants to sell 9000.

Profits from her work will also go towards the costs of her trip to Italy next year when she will represent New Zealand at the Wakeboard World Champs.

She has already enjoyed international success – placing first in the amateur women section of the word champs in Toronto in 2017.

She started wakeboarding as a 10-year-old and her success has come with a succession of injuries.

“I tuned by ACL 3 times with my knees, and injuries have been my biggest setback and challenges.” Said Morgan.
