FRANK-ly I’m just Cy-KEN-ing CHRIS-country
I hear you ask, why I’m “FRANK-ly just Cy-KEN-ing CHRIS-country”, because frankly, I’m just cycling cross country. 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.
Frank was the father-in-law I never got to meet, Ken was my indestructible “Jack of all trades” grandfather and Chris was a close friend and loving husband to Del and father to the Martin’s. These three are just a few of the many I know who were unfortunately taken too soon by Cancer.
Frank and Chris both passed with way too much life still to live and Ken left a legacy behind that taught me to never sit still and wait for others to do things, just get cracking yourself. So, I am.
I’m confident in saying that everyone has been affected by cancer in one way or another. It has taken many great people away too early, with only a lucky few being able to beat this monster. I can’t perform ground breaking research, I can’t assist clinical trials in a lab, and I definitely can’t break down cells to their molecular structure to find the key that unlocks the door that cures Cancer. But, I can ride a bike.
I am putting the hockey shoes aside and hanging the stick up a few times a week to get some K’s on the tredly. I’m fundraising in the lead up to the Cancer 200 Ride for Research and would love your support. Could I please ask you to spare some change and give generously to my donation page.
Help me help the Perkins beat Cancer.
