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.

    13 Oct 2021

    Well today is day 13 of the Great Cycle Challenge, so far I have only missed one day of riding, when I had a big run to do. I need to cycle at least 32.5 km a day to get to 1000km. Some days I might do less some days more. Currently I have 44.7km up my sleeve, which is good in case anything happens like I get sick, injured or all of my 5 bikes break. Right now I have clocked up 467 km and imagine I should reach the half way mark tomorrow. Thanks again for your support, this is a cause I am so devoted to and really appreciate you all getting behind me. Cheers John
