My Story

17 Jul 2019

This October, We are taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer! Ella is 7 years old and going for 200km and Lou is 5 years old and going for 100km.

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 We are 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 our 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.

    The plan today was to finish up Ella’s km’s, she decided two laps around the block would take her over the 200km, but it was not meant to be, about the halfway point she was coming down a hill at over 30km /hr, she turned quickly to avoid her dad (who joined her for a run) and she slid down the hill. Lots of blood, almost her whole body covered in grazes and she only got 1.7km. She will try again tomorrow to finish up (hopefully she isn’t to sore or scared).

This took Ella to about 135km of her goal and Lou made her goal today hitting 106.33. check out the details below.
