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.

  • Will I ever start riding?
    21 Sep 2019

    Greetings, all. It is my intention to commence riding on October 2nd as I have a minor medical issue to deal with on the 1st. I'll begin with a couple of shortish rides and gradually increase distances on a daily basis. If you notice a sudden spike in the distances I cover on consecutive days it will be because I will have done the maths and believe I should push a bit harder to meet my goal. I'm excited!!
