38 Days to go!

There is now only 38 days to go until we leave for Road Raise 2021!

Plenty of time has been spent training on the bike. Since January I have ridden a distance of 1,244km, with almost 10,000m of climbing. From now until we leave on 20 March there will be lots more riding to come. 

With the help of many generous donations direct through my fundraising page and via the Bunnings BBQ and Paracombe Wine dinner I am getting closer to my $5,000 fundraising target.

Stay tuned for a raffle with some excellent prizes coming soon!

In the meantime, if you can spare a few dollars, please help me help CanTeen by making a donation.

Paracombe Wine Dinner - Friday 5 Feb 2021


It was a great night raising money for Canteen Australia. Thanks to Paracombe Wines and Caledonian Hotel.
Thank you to everyone who came along to support a great cause!





Bunnings Sausage Sizzle - Sunday 20 December

What a day!! Thank you to everyone who came out and said hello, bought a sausage or a drink, or gave a generous donation. Over $1,400 raised for CanTeen. Amazing!
A special thanks to all of my amazing helpers who made this day happen - Michael Williams, Sam Auld, Brendan Evans, Ace Lewis, Kym Howard, Kathy Moulds, James Moulds and Kylie Hawkins. A long and busy day, but a fun and rewarding one with this awesome crew.
The highlight of the day definitely being an order from a taxi, delivered with a smile.


Help me to support young people living with cancer!

I am very excited to announce I have signed up to Road Raise 2021, raising money for CanTeen to support young people who have been affected by cancer.

 

Road Raise 2021 was originally “Road Raise 2020” riding from Adelaide to Melbourne (1,100km with 7,500m Elevation). Thanks to COVID, the event was postponed, and relaunched in 2021 as a Tour of South Australia.

 

~35 cyclists (along with 10 support crew, including my wife Jules) will ride a loop around South Australia to raise much needed funds for CanTeen as well as putting money back into the local economy. So while it isn’t Melbourne, it is still 1,000km in 7 days…but it is also now over 12,000 metres of climbing… which is more than Everest and Kosciuszko combined.

 

So while COVID has impacted everyone, cancer hasn’t changed. Young people directly impacted by cancer hasn’t changed. So the money we raise to allow CanTeen to support these young people is vital. By supporting my fundraising you are helping support CanTeen support young people impacted by cancer.

 

Stay tuned for fundraising events coming soon. In the meantime if you are able to help me achieve my fundraising target of $5,000 to support CanTeen please make a donation.

 

Thank you for your support!
