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.

Thomas

  • Day 5
    5 Oct 2020

    Well I headed out later than expected due to some pottering and jobs, the wind had increased and it was 31c. So I put on my big boy pants and went for a cycle. On my way around TSV I realised how lucky I am to live here and there are so many routes I have not tried. So today was a follow my nose and oh got a little lost but back out with the team in the morning for a group ride 💪

  • First training ride
    23 Jul 2020

    Well At 0600 and into the breaking dawn we set off on a steady 50km cycle. After taking in some of the Townsville coastline we darted through town back to base in under 2 hours, well done to all the team I have posted the route on my FB page and sent it to all the team so you can see the progress. Once we ride in October you can track it on this page. Thanks and keep donating
