My Story

3 Aug 2020

This year I have decided to join my dad 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.

  • Day 14
    14 Oct 2020

    Today is double donation day and i just happen to have an RDO, cause i love to set myself crazy challenges i thought why not ride 100km, nothing fast just get the kms in, so i did. It was tough 100km rides use to be my bread and butter but not now. When times got tough i just thought of all the poor kids suffering with cancer and it helps put your pain and suffering into perspective and realise its nothing compared to what they go through everyday!
