My Story

This October, I am taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer!

Because right now, 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.

Please support my challenge by making a donation through my fundraising page to give these kids the brighter futures they deserve.

Together, we can save little lives.

Thanks for your support.

  • Two weeks to go
    14 Nov 2019

    Well, two weeks left of my fundraising page being open and I'm so close to achieving my re-re-revised target of $4,500 thanks to quite a few very generous friends :)

    The weather of late hasn't been favourable for bike riding with strong Westerlies making life difficult; the tail wind doesn't really compensate for the headwind :(

    I have 2 weeks to knock 570km on the head!!!

    I'm really hoping for some calm conditions to make life (and pedaling) easier for me !!

    30 Oct 2019

    I've hit the 1000km mark for October :) and as an added bonus, my fundraising target has been exceeded!!

    My fundraising page will remain open until the end of November so there will still be time to make a donation.

    This means after a day or two of rest, I'll get back on the bike and ride 🚴‍♀️ another 1000km in November.

    Huge thanks to all my generous supporters!

  • The home stretch
    27 Oct 2019

    I've had a few days break thanks to the wind, work and weariness setting in. Back in the saddle today and battled the hills and headwind (thankfully sort of a tailwind on the way home). I have 252km left to pedal to reach my 1000km goal for October.

    My fundraising is progressing well; I'm $383 shy of my revised target of $3500.

    There's four more days left of October so the pressure is ON :)

  • Great day for kite surfers!
    16 Oct 2019

    Slowly getting closer to my 1000km target! Today's ride to Queenscliff was assisted by a slight tail wind which swung into a very strong Westerly by the time it came to return home....ideal conditions for kite surfers...not so great for bike riders :(

    Great day for kite surfers!
