My Story

28 Aug 2021

Over the last couple of years I've spoken with more than a few parents and grand parents of kids fighting cancer at Melbourne's Royal Children's Hospital. Very real, heart-rending no filter conversations. Desperately upsetting but also somehow life affirming. Conversations that have had a profound effect on me.

The simple fact is cancer is the largest single killer of children from disease in Australia – over 600 children are diagnosed with cancer every year and sadly, 3 die every week. Kids should be living life, not fighting for it.

And so I am riding and raising funds to support the Children's Medical Research Institute to continue their work into the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and finding a cure for childhood cancer. I'm also riding in memory of my dad, Colin Openshaw, who died of cancer when I was 10, and my lovely mum, Janet Sawell, taken by cancer at the age of 61.

If you can support my challenge by making a donation through my fundraising page. Every little bit helps!

Thanks for your support.
