  • The end of the ride
    7 Dec 2017

    Hi,

    As you know, last month I took part in the Great Cycle Challenge...

    And I've now completed my challenge!

    Throughout the month, I pedalled a total of 613.4 km and raised $1,050 to fight kids' cancer.

    It was tough. My legs are sore and I'm exhausted, but it was worth every aching muscle to help those brave kids fighting this terrible disease. If I ever wanted to give up or head home, I just thought of those kids and your generous support, and I kept going.

    To all my sponsors, THANK YOU for supporting my challenge to save little lives.

    A special congratulations to Jon Yen who won the Batman painting by Matt Dunn!

    Cancer is the biggest killer of kids from disease in Australia, and it’s only from your support that treatments can be developed and a cure found to give these kids the brighter futures they deserve.

    If you are yet to sponsor me, please make a donation via the link below to support my efforts:

    Here's the link: https://greatcyclechallenge.com.au/Riders/KeithGiles/g

    All funds raised will support Children's Medical Research Institute to continue their work to end childhood cancer.

    Thank you so much for your support.

    Keith

    Hi all,

    The great cycle challenge officially ends today but my dashboard will remain open until the end of November.

    I plan to finish my 1000km ride target and continue to try and get my $2000 target.

    Thanks to all who have donated and shared so far! Your support means a lot to me.

    I'll be contacting my top 4 donors over the next couple of days to arrange which of my sketch they would like to take.

    I'll continue to run the raffle for the batman painting and do the draw at the end of November.

    If you'd like to go into the draw for it, all you have to do is donate $10 or more here https://greatcyclechallenge.com.au/Riders/KeithGiles

  • GCC has been extended!
    31 Oct 2017

    Thanks everyone for your support. It's been a crazy month for me and I'm a bit sad that I didn't hit my target distance but luckily due to all the bad weather in the southern states the great cycle challenge has been extended.

    So good news for those who haven't had a chance to donate to this awesome cause, you've got a month to make a donation and go into the draw to win the amazing Batman painting.

  • First week over
    9 Oct 2017

    It's been a tough first week of riding the #GreatCycleChallenge. Trying to find time to ride and spend time with the boy during school holidays was a bit of a challenge but thanks to today's big ride, I put myself closer to the 300km target I was hoping to have hit by today. Plus the build up has started in #Darwin and I kinda feel like I'm swimming rather than riding.

    It's been a little while since I've had any new donations and now is the time to make it happen. Up for grabs is an amazing Batman ink painting by Matthew Dunn. All you need to do is donate $10 or more here greatcyclechallenge.com.au/Riders/KeithGiles

    I've included a couple of snaps of where I'm at and ok be of the amazing painting by Matt too.

    To all my friends and followers if you could please reshare my post I'd really appreciate your help and support.

    Lastly thanks to all my donors so far, you're generosity and support has helped raise over $1,395,000 so far for the Children's Medical Research Institue. The donations will go into researching childhood cancers, and hopefully one day find a cure for some of them.

    Here it is everyone. An amazing Batman ink painting by the super talented Melbourne artist Matthew Dunn. This is from my private collection and will fit right in with the heroes theme for the #GreatCycleChallenge

    It comes in a custom made frame for Darwin residents but if you're interstate and win it'll be shipped in a flat pack without the frame. If you'd like it shipped with the frame I'll work out the shipping costs and discuss it with you at the end of the month.

    To get an entry to win this all you need to do is donate $10 or more here https://greatcyclechallenge.com.au/Riders/KeithGiles ! All previous donors who have donated $10 or more will be automatically entered.

  • October is almost here
    26 Sep 2017

    Hi everyone,

    With only a few days to go until I start my 1000km challenge. So far I've raised $1000 for the children's medical research institute.

    Currently I'm offering my top 3 highest donors a choice of any of my sketches I've drawn.

    I'll also be running a raffle during October and anyone who donates $10 or more will be going into the draw this includes anyone who has already donated. The prize still isn't quite ready yet but it will be by Saturday (hopefully). I've donated a piece from my private collection and it's a one of a kind art piece by a special artist friend who has generously given me so many wonderful paintings over the years and has agreeed to let me raffle one off them off. Check out the image for a little hint as to what it could be.

    THANKYOU so far to all my sponsors who have helped me reach my target and for sharing my little campaign to help raise awareness and money.

    If you're strapped for cash but would still like to help, please share my post on Facebook. The one share could lead to more people helping out with this wonderful charity that does so to help these sick kids and their families.

    October is almost here

    10 Aug 2017

    Yesterday was another big day for donations. Thanks to Sammy and Rudy for your donations. I passed the halfway mark with your generosity. With just $154 left to go to my target I'm really hoping to surpass the $500 mark by the end of August.

    Today the 3000+ riders have raised over $100,000 in just over a week since the campaign started. It's really amazing how generous people have been!

    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.

    Keith
