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

My Challenge

  • It’s done. Time for a rest day!
    27 Oct 2019

    Done like a dogs dinner.

    1510kms done. $1382.99 raised, 1 sore bum, 2 sore legs but hopefully 1 step closer to a cancer free world.

    Thank you to all of my sponsors; your support means the world to me.

    It’s done. Time for a rest day!

    A hugely sincere thank you to all my sponsors. The money you have donated has gone towards funding childhood cancer research.

    One day there will be a cure; maybe not in our lifetime but one day children and adults alike won’t have to suffer through this terrible disease; in part due to your generosity.

    THANK YOU. Now it’s time to up my goal to 1500. Another 200kms to finish off the month!

    22 Oct 2019

    22 days and 1104kms done. Only 197 left to go!

    It’s been an interesting journey. It’s not been smooth sailing all the way but I definitely wouldn’t change a thing.

    A huge thank you to all my sponsors and supporters who have contributed money and/or encouragement along the way. A little sore bum and tired legs is nothing compared to what these kids endure day after day without their luxury of a rest day when its raining or windy or hot or cold or when they just don’t feel like.

    19 Oct 2019

    A nice easy ride today along the little para river trail.

    Dry creek trail was flooded, saw a kookaburra just chilling in the grass and a brown snake sunning himself. Got a photo of his rear end. Snakes can move fast when they want to!

    A bit windy but a great ride

    21 Sep 2019

    Well thank you to everyone who has sponsored the ride; we made the initial $500 target very quickly and now we’ve passed the $1000 mark!

    I’m truely amazed and humbled by the generosity of everyone.

    On a practical note the bike is serviced and set up perfectly. There are no excuses now. I’ve got a few more days of freedom and then it’s pedals down and the miles will roll by.

    10 Aug 2019

    Here I am at the very start of this journey to raise as much money as possible to help fight childhood cancer.

    I’ve set my goal at 1300km which is a touch over 40km a day, 7 days a week. This is a time struggle more than anything but I’m willing to push it higher if enough people donate ... struggle with your cash and I’ll struggle with my legs.

    The actual riding starts in October so I’ve got a bit over a month and a half to enjoy life before it gets serious.
