Luke Spalding

Luke Spalding

❤️ Riding in memory of my 2nd cousin, Luke Spalding ❤️ Luke was a strong, selfless, handsome, talented young man who touched the lives of many. He had a bright future ahead of him and was taken way too soon. Luke Spalding was diagnosed with a very rare cancer 4 years ago and although his 'battle' was a difficult one, he never let the beast defeat him. In the words of his Mum (my cousin) Sarah - 'He didn't live with Cancer. Cancer lived with him. He sure as took it on one hell of a ride!'. Even when he was at his sickest Luke continued to follow his dream and passion of racing his Formula 3 car #23 and in extreme pain he still managed to outclass many of his competitors. He also held a fundraising campaign every Christmas to purchase over 200 iPads for children in hospital and delivered them with the help of his family with a smile on Christmas Day. Unfortunately we lost Luke in September 2016 after a 5 year fight with childhood cancer.

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.
