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.

    Hi All,

    Firstly, a massive THANK YOU to everyone who has already donated to my Great Cycle Challenge! The support has been incredible and completely above and beyond my expectations. It’s a great cause and your support is providing extra motivation to get out there and pedal further!

    This morning I hit my personal 300km target set for the month but I certainly won’t stop there! Our team is committed to hitting 3000km and we are well on track to exceed that as well.

    I wanted to share this update because this Wednesday 13th October is Kick Cancer's Butt Day! 

    On Kick Cancer's Butt Day, supporters of Children's Medical Research Institute (CMRI) will MATCH ALL DONATIONS received, up to $1,000,000!

    If you’re thinking about donating, this is a great opportunity to maximise your contribution. Every little bit helps!

    Thanks again

    Simon
