Road Raise 2021

My Road Raise Update!

Hi Family & Friends!

Just thought I’d check in and give you all an update on my “ROAD RAISE”

I’m currently into my 8th month of training and with each ride its getting more and more surreal!

From where it all began in June 2020, I was averaging approx. 150 kms per month. Fast Forward to January 2021 and I’ve completed 814 kms for the month! AND IM FEELING IT!

I still have a long way to go, as in the ride we will be averaging around 150 kms per day over a 7 day period and CLIMBING the equivalent of 8 Willunga Hill’s PER DAY!

And here is the real reason for my ride, is to support young people with cancer and their families doing it tough. And I’m so proud to be able to ride along side my son Ryan who is in his 3rd year supporting this cause!

Every year, another 23,000 young people are affected by cancer, whether it’s a close family member’s diagnosis or their own. That’s 63 young people every day.

We get it. Just when life should be full of possibilities, cancer crashes into a young person’s world and shatters everything. CanTeen is the game changer.

We help young people cope with their own cancer or cancer in their family. Through CanTeen, they learn to explore and deal with their feelings about cancer, connect with other young people in the same boat and, if they’ve been diagnosed themselves, we provide specialist, youth-specific treatment teams.

By feeling understood and supported, young people develop resilience and can rebuild the foundations that crumbled beneath them when cancer turned their life upside down. That’s how CanTeen is the difference.

CanTeen works by having young people at the centre of everything we do. Combined with our leading-edge research into the emotional and social impacts of cancer, it ensures that we truly understand how cancer is different in a young person’s world.

 

Please help me to reach my goal and together we can be the difference in their lives.

Thank You for your support! 

Craig.
