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.

    So the girls took their dad out for a ride on the dirt tracks around Diamond Beach. They found a lot of mud puddles and had a great time riding through the puddles (and making a lot more washing for mum). This took Ella to about 135km of her goal and Lou made her goal today hitting 106.33. check out the details below.
