I’m riding to beat cancer and for our futures
I ride for the Blackburn Family. We ride as Team Smiley specifically by way of paying tribute to the fearless Peter Blackburn and his positive attitude in facing his cancer diagnosis. We sadly lost Peter to cancer in March 2022. He was a long-term supporter and passionate research advocate and would use the Smiley face as a symbol for hope during his cancer treatment, as well joys of life. The team now want the symbolic Smiley face to spread that hope that Harry Perkins Institute can bring with their cancer research breakthroughs.
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 2023, 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.
Please help me, help the Perkins.
So far this year I helped provide…
