Why do I Ride?

In January of 1996 I was 13yrs old and my mum had just been diagnosed with Chronic Myeloid Leukaemia (a form of blood cancer). My Mum fought this ugly disease for the remainder of that year, receiving a bone marrow transplant from a brother then going through months of chemotherapy treatment. She eventually won her battle and was in remission by December 1996. These days she is retired, travelling the country during the colder months and walks about 20,000 steps a day for fun 🤩.

I ride to raise funds for the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research. I ride so that kids don’t have to experience what I did at 13. I also ride in honour of the many whom I know/of who have fought hard and sadly lost their battle. 

2023 will be my third year - over the years my fundraising, has raised over $6,500 - would You help me reach $10k this year?

Together we can help make a difference.
