  • Grovers 4000 -- Update Day 18
    18 Oct 2020

    4000km In 31 Days:

    To all the Grover’s 4000 supporters and those that have donated to either Liam, Tony, Murray or myself let me tell you we are smashing the KMs en route to 4000.

    It’s been a big weekend with some of the following highlights.

    Liam - Back to Back rides on both Saturday 61km and Sunday 52.0k to boost his total to 624.0km. This is a huge effort for a bloke that is on the road to Melbourne for work five days a week.

    Murray - Joined Liam for back to back rides as well as accumulating a 61.6km ride and a 55.1km trek.

    Murray now sits at 764.6km and will have no issues in pushing to 1000 in the next 13 days.

    Matt (yours truly) earned a day off today (Sunday) after belting out a PB of 127.7km on Day 17. A great ride into the Crit Track to meet the boys and smash a few laps before a return trip back to Curlewis. My totals currently sit at 877.1km and with only 123km to go to the target.

    The story of the weekend however goes to our Professor, Mr Tony Joel who has notched up two rides over the weekend totalling 155.5km. That’s pretty cool and a good effort for the weekend however it gets better. Tony has now passed the 1000km target on Day 18 of the 31 day challenge. Outstanding effort 🥂 🍻

    For all our Grover’s 4000 supporters your donations have inspired us all, we have not and will not let you down on our way to 4000km. Who knows even that target may be increased just like the fundraising goals we have changed regularly given your generosity.

    Some interesting Stats:

    Murray - 12 Rides, longest ride 122k, 235km to go.

    Tony - 20 Rides, longest ride 121km, hit the target 1000km on Day 18.

    Liam - 11 Rides, longest ride, 102km, 376km to go.

    Matt - 14 Rides, longest ride 128km, 123km to go.

    TOTAL - 57 Rides for 3272.1km

    728km to go for the Grover’s 4000km target.

    Now the best part:

    Fundraising Stats - Number of Sponsors 236

    Current National Ranking 14th

    Total funds raised - $18,234.91

    Last Wednesday the GCC 2020 had a generous donor that matched up to 68% of all contributions made on that day. We received an extra $1396.26 in donations to our totals from the double up day. Well done to you all.

    So - that’s a wrap for the Grover’s 4000 team after Day 18. It’s been amazing so far to receive so much support and to have contributed over $18,000 so far to the Medical Research for Kids fighting Cancer is unbelievable.

    We cannot thank you guys enough, you have inspired us all to ride like the wind and smash this challenge. Help us now pass the magical $20,000 figure by spreading our message to your family, friends and colleagues.

    Thank you and talk to you wonderful people in a few days.

    Matt on behalf of Liam, Tony and Murray.

    Grovers 4000 towards 20k.

    POSTSCRIPT: Since Matt wrote the above message, another outstanding milestone has been reached with Liam hitting the $3000 mark for individual donations. Chapeau, Lima!

    Furthermore, Matt's too humble to acknowledge it in his own post so I'll mention it on his behalf. This national challenge attracts riders from all over Australia. Indeed, so far in October over 23,000 cyclists have combined to ride almost 2 million kms and raise over $6 million in the fight against kids' cancer. And, with a personal total of $10,867 in donations to date, Matt ranks as the 14th highest in Australia. Phenomenal effort! (And, may I point out, if Matt receives an extra few hundred dollars in support over the coming days it could be enough to see him land in the TOP TEN...)

    Regards, Tony

    This October, Grovers 4000 is 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 we are 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 our challenge by making a donation through our fundraising page to give these kids the brighter futures they deserve.

    Together, we can save little lives.

    Thanks for your support.

    Liam, Matt, Murray, and Tony
