My Story

15 Sep 2019

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.

My Challenge

  • Well I did it!!!!!
    31 Oct 2019

    Hello all my sponsors....I did it!! Yay. Rode the last 30km today and the last 15 was very very hot!!! Not in a good way either.

    Thank you to all of you who have generously contributed. It is greatly appreciated. The money goes to a fantastic cause research and treatment for childhood cancers and we all benefit from that!! What more can I say...I rode my bike, but that's easy because I love it, but you all made it worthwhile and made a difference. THANK YOU πŸ˜˜πŸš΄β€β™€οΈπŸš΄β€β™€οΈπŸš΄β€β™€οΈπŸ€Έβ€β™€οΈ

  • Mullim mullim and back!
    28 Oct 2019

    Fabulous day for riding. I am stuck looking for another 100kms to complete my challenge...although let's face it...all of life is a challenge! Went out on the Koonyung trail to the opening of the Mullim Mullim tunnel. It is a fantastic ride. Gorgeous bush, beautiful trail. I hope I can inspire you to get on your bikes and go for a ride. The last bit, because I didn't have enough kms was up hill! 😒 Still managed to click over just enough. Thankyou to all my supporters, it is much appreciated. Thinking of other ways to help.....then forward this on to your friends and relations! πŸ™‚ Every bit helps!!

    Rode to work today in the not quite rain...more like mizzle (cross between mist and drizzle)! Slippery roads and extra care needed. Still, any day on a bike is a great day πŸ˜ŠπŸš΄β€β™€οΈ!

    It's a jungle out there. Rode to work yesterday in the rain. Slippery and extra care needed. Still, it's a great way to start the day.

    Today is double donation day, so if you donate a willing philanthropist will double your donation 😊 go on....you know you want to donate to a very worthy cause, fighting kids cancer!

  • What happened to my story??
    7 Oct 2019

    Somewhere on this site was "my story" and why I was doing this challenge....but it seems to have become misplaced!!

    I have done this challenge a few years ago, when my mother had pancreatic cancer. I rode 1000kms in a month but the fund raising was the real goal.

    Since then I have been diagnosed and treated for breast cancer. Last year I did the BCNA fundraising ride and this year the Great Cycle Challenge. I definitely can't ride 1000kms in a month now, and I have set the level at 500kms, but even that is a serious challenge. I haven't really been back on the bike until recently so gradually winding uo the km's. I am hoping that it wont be a 250km last weekend to squeeze in the km's before the end!

    As per usual it is the fundraising that is important. So if you have bothered to read this far then could you press the donate button and contribute the continual fight against cancer and in this case children with cancer. ANY DONATION HELPS!!

  • Trying to think of something worthwhile reading!
    7 Oct 2019

    Did a ride on Sunday that was absolutely gorgeous! In the country, fresh air, beautiful scenery and mostly down hill!! Does it get better than that?? Any riders out there that want a fantastic ride then check out the Kobyboyne cutting on Ghin Ghin Rd just north of Yea. Beautiful.

    Of course I am not up to the "Up" part just yet!! Hopefully towards the end of the challenge..
