Road Raise 2021

Almost D day

Getting really close to leaving - 2 days away. 

Anticipation is building but for me it's all excitement.  You know I love a challenge. 
1000 ks with 11,000 metres of climbing in 7 days is going to hurt but I'm obviously choosing to do it. 

The kids we're supporting with the funds raised - are hurting too but they don't choose to be affected by cancer.   The money se raise will go towards supporting them through their journey. 

We will have a Canteen Kid (as she calls herself) riding with us. 
She joined Canteen at 11yrs and 9 months and has been with them for 15 years. 

She does not have cancer.  
In her time with Canteen she has attended camps and holidays, had amazing experiences, had time to get away from thinking about her suffering and sorrow and built some life long friendships because of the money we (and many others) raise.

During that same time, she has lost BOTH HER PARENTS to Cancer. 

I don't know how to cure cancer but I do know I can support the people affected by it by raising a few more dollars.  

That's why I'm riding 1000kms in 7 days and raising as much money as I can. 

Your donations will go a long way to making the journey for other teenagers a little easier. 

Thank you to everyone who donates, supports in their own way or shares this page so we can raise more funds. 

Hi There,

In April 2020 I am committed to make a difference in supporting young people when cancer crashes into their world.

CanTeen is the game changer - They help young people cope with cancer in their family, rebuild their foundations and connect with their peers in similar situations.

I'll be saddling up with 35 like minded cyclists on an epic journey from Adelaide to Melbourne - over 7 days travellling more than 1100kms AND reaching a total elevation of over 7500 Metres !

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

Thank you for your support!

Thank you to my Sponsors
