Mum & Dad

Mum and Dad never got the chance to enjoy being Grandparents together because of cancer, so I want to contribute towards a cure for this so future generations can live long enough to enjoy the fruits of a good life

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.

My Challenge

  • Last day blues!
    31 Oct 2020

    Well, that marks the end of the GCC for 2020. I din't get on the bike quite as much as I wanted to but I had so much fun exploring the local area.

    I found another gem by turning left instead of right at one trail. Isn't it just the little things in life eh?

    This was a really nice, fairly flat ride that let me site back and enjoy the scenery. I even found a nice spot by Eumemmering Ck to stop and sit for 10 minutes - just because!

    A huge shout-out to every one of my kind and generous supporters for helping me, well, basically annihilate my fundraising goal! Along with the donation, the stories that were shared both online and privately were very grounding and I thank you for trusting me with your personal thoughts on living with cancer.

    Let's hope this makes a difference soon so we can just jump on a bike because it is fun!!

    Cheers

    Steve

    25 Oct 2020

    All this riding is forcing me to explore the area a bit more and I found some cool tracks around the local wetlands. A few extra k's per ride, but they are awesome - although a little flooded at times after the rain, still nice to have this sort of view in the 'burbs!
