My Story

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

  • GCC - 8
    31 Oct 2021

    ...my last ride for GCC 21 didn't go according to my plan - ride to the coast and after a cruise around end up at a local cafe for a hot chocolate and a snack...

    ...the end result included a buggered knee, aggravated back injury, an awkward crash and me lying on the ground laughing at it all...

    ...a thank you to everybody that has supported this year's GCC - you can take pride in knowing that you helped save a life...

    ...stay tuned for a final update on the GCC in late November once everything has been finalised - should be some good statistics...

    ...stay safe...

    21 Oct 2021

    ...finally, back in the saddle cycling after my recent visit to Tasmania and specialist appointments...

    ...rest assured, despite being squally wet weather on Bribie Island (and surrounding area) this morning - it was still pleasantly warm (no chill in the wind - just windy)...

    ...the GCC "rides on" - $6.2M and just under 2M kilometres. Fantastic effort. - proud to be involved...

    ...IF you are making donations - please follow the GCC page prompts. I am tracking (with the GCC) two donations that haven't appeared on my page (for several external reasons). I have spoken with the GCC and the best indicator that your donation was processed correctly, will be the issue of a receipt (automatically generated)...

    ...if you experience any issues - contact me OR the GCC for assistance...

    ...my concern, is that donations are made in good faith and donors should be certain that the money gets to the GCC and is receipted. The issue of donations not appearing on my GCC page is not important...

    ...you'll notice that my profile picture has been updated- thanks to your support the 2021 GCC Superhero Jersey (Captain America) arrived while I was in Tasmania...

    ...the Jersey is a brilliant tool for raising public awareness - people ask about it and subsequently the GCC...

    ...a few short rides planned for Bribie Island - need to be careful of my knees (surgery imminent)...

    ...stay safe...

    ...it's Kick Cancer's Butt Day...

    ...last ride in HBT - still cold with the wind chill but at least this morning's ride was downhill (a few nasty short hills to keep me honest. Lol!)...

    ...the statistics for the GCC are rocketing - brilliant effort all round...

    ...thank you to everyone that has or will donate to the GCC - you have made a difference...

    ...stay safe...
