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 best riding buddy
    21 Oct 2019

    Thanks to my best riding buddy, Bella, for coming along on such big rides with Mum! :D Her longest ride this month was 25km, which is a long way for little legs. Bella stacked it today, but got straight back up and kept riding. What an awesome riding buddy!

  • A ride to Simpson’s Gap
    20 Oct 2019

    It was a beautiful morning for a ride! Despite the 7.30am start, it was cloudy with a nice tail wind. And the scenery was just amazing. Thanks to my old DPIR pals, Roberta and Anett, for joining me! And thanks to Johno for picking us up at the end and supplying us with cold Powerades!

    10 Oct 2019

    So thankful for all the generous donations today - every bit counts toward beating the shit out of cancer. I rode 20km in the gym tonight, as I felt extra motivated by your donations - thanks again! And now it’s time for bed!

  • Just keep spinning...
    9 Oct 2019

    Tomorrow is kick cancers butt day, which means any donations received tomorrow will be doubled!

    I am at work, so not knocking off as many k’s as I would have liked, but will make up for it when I’m back home in the Alice.

    Just keep spinning...

  • Did a longer one today!
    7 Oct 2019

    Very proud of my little girl - we rode almost 26km this afternoon! It was a hot one, too! This time we were joined by the lovely Bek. Stopped at the telegraph station for a milkshake. Still have a lot of k’s to do, but it’s only the end of week 1.

    Did a longer one today!

    Nice ride this evening with Johno and Bella. Feeling a bit flat this weekend. Was hoping to have knocked more k’s off by now, but I will pick up the pace next week.

    It’s hot here in the Alice. Bella and I managed a 20km ride this morning and Bella stacked it crossing the Todd River. We are now home, hot and buggered. But our discomfort is nothing compared to what the poor children suffering from cancer are going through! Get behind this great cause and let’s help kick cancers butt!
