Peter Leedman

I'm riding for cancer research at the Perkins!

Each year I participate in an extraordinary community-driven 200 km ride to raise much needed funds for innovative, cutting edge cancer research at the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research (‘the Perkins”). It is a very picturesque two-day ride down to Mandurah and back, and is a truly wonderful experience.

We are especially excited about the event in October of 2019 as we have recently taken control of all aspects of the event in-house and have renamed and rebadged it for 2019. It is now called the “The MACA Cancer 200” – all of the funds raised going to the Perkins.

Almost a thousand riders (including my wife Dr Sarah Paton, and hopefully at least one of my kids, Sam Leedman did it in 2018) and hundreds of helping crew share a common bond - all are affected in some personal way by cancer. The passion and commitment which oozes out of everyone involved is palpable and helps generate an incredibly memorable weekend.

The MACA Cancer200 Ride for Research raises critical funds for vital cancer research in the Perkins, which is focused on the hard to treat tumours, including liver, pancreas, brain, triple negative breast, advanced melanoma and prostate cancer. We feel the urgency for our research and the need to more rapidly translate our findings into new diagnostics and treatments. Our world-class cancer researchers collaborate widely to help solve the problems presented by some of these most recalcitrant tumours.

The MACA Cancer200 funds are used to recruit top scientists to WA, provide Fellowships for our brightest cancer researchers, help provide core facilities and contribute essential equipment needed for world-class science.

My goal this year is to raise $20,000, and I am starting to fund raise early this year, helped by our new MACA Cancer200 website that is easy to navigate and provides great background on the event.

I would really appreciate if you could help me reach my target!

My main support this year's ride is for my office manager Sharon Ford (who has done well in her fundraising), but I thought I also should have a modest each way bet on you too. Steven
