The Fifth Wheel

Together we can do great things


We're a small bunch of uni students who have decided to tackle the challenge of riding 200km- a harder adventure for some of us unfit team members! However, no matter the details, we're pumped and ready to give it everything we've got! More importantly, we're aiming high for our fundraising venture ...much higher than a uni student's ever seen in their bank account!

We'd love for you, and many others, to join us and get behind the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research.

Needless to say, the Institue conducts groundbreaking research, making progress in the long and tedious road to find treatments and eventually, a cure for cancer. Without community support, this progress is unable to continue at the current pace.

Undoubtedly, we need not express the importance of this field as you've already found your way to our page! Have a look at our riders and their individual stories and we thank you for your support on not only our fundraising journey... but also our lovely long bike ride!

Thank you to our Sponsors
