My Story

  • Thanks to everyone
    1 Nov 2017

    Well October has come to an end and so has the Great Cycle Challenge.

    Across Australia riders covered 2,216,512 kilometres and as of midnight have raised $3,169,256.

    I am humbled by the support shown to me as I did my small part for this cause. I rode 1,100 kms and have raised $3,120 with some more to come from a few people who committed per kilometres.

    Thanks you for your donation and support for this worthy cause and no doubt you’ll be hearing from me next year.

  • Halfway
    21 Oct 2017

    After some missed days due to holidays, pet emergency and miserable weather I've hit the halfway mark. Baring a breakdown to me or machine I'm back on track to get to my target. I am again amazed and the support and generosity of people. When I have a day that I'm a bit tired and don't feel like riding, the legs are screaming thanks to a head wind and other parts of the anatomy are telling me that they are not happy about getting into the saddle again I relect on those fighting this disease and how fortunate I am to have good health and able to take part in a challenge like this and do my small bit to help so just tell myself to toughen up and get on with it.

    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.

    Doug
