I’m riding to beat cancer

In 2021 I rode in honour of my late great mate Colin Wright. Just 10 days into 2022 and I have all the motivation I need for this year. 

My only brother David has just past away less than 2 months after being diagnosed with lung cancer.

In this COVID fixated world this is not just about finding a cure for cancer. It’s about awareness, detection, treatment and care. 

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 because it’s lifechanging to be part of making a difference to families everywhere.

In honour of David and Colin I’ll be so grateful for your support. Please give generously to my fundraising page.

Together, we can help make cancer history.
