My Story

9 May 2020

This October, I am taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer! I had my own battle with Cancer last year and I would not like to see others go through it. I feel very strongly that we need to find a cure and believe research is the key.

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.

  • KM's dropped by half
    23 Oct 2020

    HI All my sponsors - sorry but I have dropped my KM's goal to 140kms after undergoing chemotherapy it is just to high a mountain (target) to climb when you body is being knocked around so much.

    I will beat cancer this year and be back next year.

  • 1st week done
    6 Oct 2020

    I have got my 1st week done and I have completed 86kms. Thats 29% of my target. There a few rain days this week so I guess I will have to ride in between the rain. I would have liked to crack the $2k in donations. So close 77% of my fundraising target has been achieved. Thanks to all my sponsors for their support.
