My Story

2 Aug 2019

Hi,

Once again this October, I am taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer!

My goal is to pedal 1,000 kilometres throughout the month & raise more than $2000.

This is my 4th year & so far have raised $5746 & ridden 3010km for this cause.

Cancer is the largest killer of children from disease in Australia - 3 children die of cancer every week.

To show my support, I am taking on this 30-day challenge to support cancer research and give these kids the brighter futures they deserve.

As usual it will be a tough month with including running a half marathon, but it's nothing compared to what these brave kids face every day.

Please make a donation through my fundraising page to support my challenge. Or if you wish you can sign up as well via my page & join my team "LET'S DO THIS".

All funds raised will support Children's Medical Research Institute in their work to develop treatments and find a cure for all childhood cancers.

Cheers

    Well it's 10 days since 2019 GCC was launched and many thanks to those who've already donated.

    This year GCC have deemed me as a champion, I don't believe I am but they do and have asked me to help encourage more participants and possibly have some group rides. I have therefore set up a team called "Let's do this" and I'd live to encourage everyone who signs up to ride and raise to sign up to the team as well. It's also ok to just donate as well

    Thank you for whatever way you support.

    Cheers
