6 months to go!

So its getting real! In 6 months time I'll be starting Day One of our 200km ride. I am sooo excited to be part of this again this year. 

It is time to up the fundraising game now. Thanks to the super generous support of the Pullman Bunker Bay Resort in Dunsborough, I have a phenomenal prize to give away! A luxury two-night break in a garden studio room for two people inclusive of full breakfast each day!  Yes, wowza right! All you need to do is purchase a $25 raffle ticket to secure your entry!  More details to come, so watch this space =)

We ride this year!

Great news! I am still cancer free! This is all down to the team at The Harry Perkins Institute and their colleagues around the world. They are constantly striving to find ways to live with cancer and ultimately a cure!

Throughout my treatment and my time since my op I have wanted to give back and this ride is the perfect opportunity to do that. Last year was epic. It was tough and it was emotional but it was wonderful to be surrounded by so many people all coming together with a common goal.

Prior to the ride last year, Professor Leedman (head of Harry Perkins) spoke and asked us to raise a hand if we new anyone affected by cancer. Everyone raised their hand. He then asked us to raise our other hand if we knew more than 1, and everyone of the 1600 riders raised their other hand. This was a poignant moment. He asked us to continue riding as long as we are able and I decided there and then this was going to be the first ride of many... so this year i ride again! 


14th October - we're on!

I’m riding to beat cancer

There isn’t a single person I know that hasn’t been touched by cancer. Whether it’s through a loved one, friend, family member or it’s much more personal, cancer is a terrible burden.

In 2022, I’m taking a stand against cancer and backing the brilliant brains at the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research.

These WA researchers are committed to finding answers faster and developing ground-breaking treatments for the hardest to treat cancers.

Because no one should have to hear those two life-altering words, “It’s cancer.”

I’m training, fundraising and riding 200km to support WA cancer research. But I’m not doing it alone, there’s a growing group of riders who return year after year to this ride. They do so not only because it’s lifechanging but because the event feels like a big reunion - where all the guests are the family you love!

I’d be so grateful for your support.

If you can’t join me (I’d love the company), please give generously to my fundraising page.

Together, we can help make cancer history.
