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.

Carol

    21 Oct 2020

    My first Great Cycle Challenge to raise money for the Children’s Medical Research Foundation for the fight against Children’s Cancer. It has been a humbling experience and a worthwhile mode to gain fitness as all of the participation riders think about real hero’s , the children and their parents.My Strava kudos buddy has encouraged me to increase my goal, so I will now up it to 400ks. All donations to the GCC would be most appreciated..

    Reached my 300 kms goal.
