I'm Riding For

Mel Cuschieri

Mel Cuschieri

This year i am riding in memory of a good friend who sadly passed away in early December 2018 whilst i was overseas. As much as this cause is mostly aimed at kids cancers, i want to acknowledge the risks of all cancers. Mel was an outgoing active man, he was a wonderful husband and father to a beautiful family, taken by cancer in the prime of his life. So Please help me kick cancers butt and support me in my goals.

My Story

15 Jul 2019

This October, again 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.

  • Doubled Donation Day
    11 Oct 2019

    Well Folks, what an amazing day for donations, Nationally $887054.60 was raised.

    This of course is beyond the limits of $730k + an additional $20k later yesterday.

    So to be fair for all GCC fundraisers the donations have been matched evenly by a percentage. Which means our efforts were matched by 84.5495% or $564.43, well done to you all for digging deep for a wonderful cause.

    Wow, it's been a fantastic morning for donations, people are really taking advantage of the Doubled Donations Day.

    Thanks everyone for your support, donations and encouragement, the weather has gotten really hot up here with high humidity which is making this really hard. BUT, I will NOT give up.

    I am doing this to give kids a fighting chance against cancer.
