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.

John

    Just got from a ride out to Claremont only to find heaps of donations have come in while I was out being blown about by the wind. Here is a photo of me in my Hero Jersey which GCC awarded me for my efforts. Thanks for all your support every one of you, thanks a lot.

    Thank you to all my supporters, this year’s Challenge has been overwhelming. I feel humbled to have such fantastic people behind me. With today being Day 7 it is a relief that I have peddled 207km this week, all be it virtually. Been to England, Las Vegas, Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, Holland and Japan. Hoping to take the bike out on the road later on when things settle down a bit. Thank you all for your support. Best wishes John
