My Story

6 Aug 2019

After missing last year I'm back for 2019, I'm going to be riding all through October, a total of 300kms. There are so many people at Birkdale Baptist and Cannon Hill Baptist - Church in Partnership who are suffering from so many different forms of cancer that I see its ravaging effect all too often. I want to ride to honour their fight, and others as well.

Also, 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.

  • Fundraising Goal Hit!!!!
    11 Sep 2019

    Thank you everyone who's sponsored me! I hit $750 earlier this week and am totally blown away by the encouragement. This is a great cause, if we can help with medical research into cancer, or just finding ways to make the lives of families dealing with a child with cancer that bit easy then it is worth it!

    Keep sharing and sponsoring, just cause I've hit my goal doesn't mean I should stop!

    Plus now there's just that little matter of the 300kms to do in October :-)

    Fundraising Goal Hit!!!!

    Redlands has some amazing bike paths! I discovered even more this week... a path through the bushlands from Capalaba to Cleveland... then another along the water from Raby Bay to Wellington Point (I believe it continues through Birkdale and Thorneside as well, which then joins up with the Thorneside to Lota/Wynnum ride I did a lot in 2017.

    Thanks for all the support - the donations have come in regularly and I'm about $100 off my fundraising goal!

    I'm trying to condition myself again for longer rides, and even nursing a knee injury think I will be ready for October. From all of this though I just want to encourage everyone to think about getting out on their bikes... the Redlands is so beautiful, and so easy to see from the cycle paths!
