I'm Riding For

Sam Abbot

Sam Abbot sat next to my daughter, Grace in year 1. He died of leukemia at 8. His family went through a terrible ordeal. Much more so for Sam.

My Story

9 Sep 2018

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.

I dedicate my ride to the memory of Sam Abbot, who sat next to my daughter Grace in year 1. Sam died a few years later after an heroic but painful battle with leukemia. He was only 8.

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.

    31 Oct 2019

    Taringa residents are rejoicing at the regular supply of green power Bat Trees. Watt's that you say ? Never going to be a replacement for Eau De Cologne, but the result is certainly VERY powerful!

    Just next to the Fruit Bat Colony (aka The Scenter) in Westlake, are some other regular inhabitants live nearby! Being of Scottish descent, I appreciate them greatly, as they can often spare a few bucks!

  • Rare photo of shy rocks feeding beside Good WIll Bridge
    24 Oct 2019

    I was very privileged to be able to catch these rarely seen but incredibly timid rocks feeding at dusk beside the Good Will bridge. A lot of people were talking loudly very close to these shy rocks. A few seconds after I took this photo, they'd all run away! :-(

  • Incontinental Travel to town was a nagging movement
    11 Oct 2019

    Came across an interesting addition, which made me think that my bike was incontinental. It turned out my bike had not travelled overseas; rather it looks like the horses helping to keep the peace, had left some pieces behind themselves.

    8 Oct 2019

    Perrin Park to City. Here's someone protesting about Climate Change. I'm as passionate about childhood cancers.

    Remembering Sam Abbot. He'd be 23 now, had he survived Leukaemia beyond his 8 years.

    Sadly missed.
