My Story

24 Sep 2021

The last two Octobers I have participated in the Great Cycle Challenge. Last year I managed to ride 304km (after starting with a goal of 100km), some on a stationary bike at the gym (when there was inclement weather; as part of my early morning gym visit with Leo) and the rest around the Gilmore/Chisholm/Monash area. I was able to raise valuable funds to support the Children’s Medical Research Institute. Swooping magpies aside, I have enjoyed both year’s challenge and the sore muscles were most definitely worth it to help kids fighting childhood cancer. The promotional material I received told me that cancer is the biggest killer of children from disease in Australia and every 2 minutes a child is diagnosed with cancer. Kids should be living life, not fighting for it.

So, I am participating again this year, starting on Friday 1st. I am hoping to ride further than last year but have started with a goal of 250km, which I hope to raise once I get into the swing of things.

As with 2020, I am very aware that 2021 has been a difficult year for many people on many levels so I realise your ability to support me may have been seriously affected. I will understand if you are unable to donate, but any donation, no matter the size will make a difference. Thank you.
