My Story

29 Sep 2020

In a few days time on the 1st of October 2020, I will commence my challenge to ride 1600klm (1000miles) in 31 days in support of the Children’s Medical Research Institute to continue their work into the Prevention, Treatment and finding a Cure for Childhood Cancer.

This insidious disease is the largest single killer of Children from Disease in Australia and 3 Children every week lose their battle For survival.

I took up riding again three years ago when my health was a personal challenge as well, so I decided now that I am in better health both Physically and mentally that I would turn my energy to the benefit of the kids and their fight for life.

Kids should be running , laughing, learning and enjoying their childhood - not fighting to be alive.

I believe that in my own small way, with the contribution of all of my wonderful sponsors these kids might yet have the chance to live a wonderful life.
