Sjaan van de Kraan

Sjaan van de Kraan

September 19, 2019 would have been Sjaan’s 80th birthday. She did not quite make it. She loved music and flowers and visits to Australia. My rides will be punctuated with pictures of Australia and flowers. Make music the way you always did

My Story

1 Oct 2020

Every year I ride for kids cancer - 7 years and still going. My challenge this year was taking shape. Melbourne to Sydney

Sadly Victoria is closed because of Covid-19. My new plan is to ride border to border in New South Wales. As the prevailing wind is from the north I am going to ride North to South - B to A = Boggabilla on the Queensland border to Albury on the Victoria border

First week will be 6 days over a 100 kms a day with support from my wife and then it is towing a trailer with camping gear from orange onwards.

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.

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.
