My Story - Why I'm riding!

I’m up for the challenge again this year, after successfully completing last year’s MACA-200 ride. The 2020 MACA Cancer200 ride for research challenge has been accepted, and this year will be riding with my eldest daughter. What a great privilege! My ride is in support of my own melanoma diagnosis and recovery of 2008, my mother’s successful 10-year journey beating breast cancer, my father-in-law’s battle over bowel cancer, my Aunty's and Cousin's breast cancer battle and the family and friends who are navigating the journey of beating cancer and those who have succumbed to it. This year’s ride will be in memory of our loving friend/neighbour who succumbed to her battle with breast cancer in Feb 2020. Hayley and I will be joining my work colleagues in team WesTrac to complete this year’s ride (Whatever that may look like for 2020!). My goal is to raise at least $2,500.00 of donations to contribute to the ongoing world class research and treatment development being undertaken right here in WA at Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research.  Your support and donations will help me to reach this goal, and in doing so contributing to the ongoing vital and valued research right here in WA that is accessible to all worldwide cancer patients. Let’s together challenge the challenges of cancer!

Your donations can be made via the links on this fundraising page. 

Appreciate in advance your support. Thanks Simon

I'm challenging myself for cancer research

Everyone has been touched by cancer sometime in their lives. Whether the diagnosis is a loved one, family member or it’s much, much more personal, cancer is a terrible burden.

This year, I am joining over 800 riders in a 2-day, 200km bike ride to raise funds for cancer research right here in WA at the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research.

I am training and fundraising in the lead up to the event. I'd love your support. If you can't join me (I'd love the company), please give generously to my donation page.

Please help me, help the Perkins.
