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.

Peter

    10 Nov 2019

    Hi,

    Last month, I rode 1150.2km in the 2019 Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer.

    It was fun and worth it.

    In the end together we raised $5568!!! Thanks to those that donated, we are a step closer to ending childhood cancer and saving little lives.

    Another big THANK YOU to everyone who sponsored my challenge as together we achieved 3rd place in Victoria as of midnight 31 October 2019. It was your support that kept me pedalling until the last day.

    Your generous donation will support Children's Medical Research Institute to allow them to continue their work to care for these kids, develop innovative treatments and find a cure for childhood cancer.

    But there's more..........

    The Challenge is continuing through till 28 November 2019, so to those that may not have had the chance to donate, you still can, true story.

    I'm going to increase my fundraising goal and of course increase my ride goal.

    I've dropped a size in my lycra outfit so let's not let that go to waste.

    Click below to view my progress throughout the month and if you can, donate also:

    Thanks again, your support is greatly appreciated.
