Inching Closer to $1000

Yippee I'm inching closer to raising $1000.  The sausage sizzle is still providing funds. I hope a few people donate (minus sausage). 
The $4000 is proving to be elusive.

The Experiences on this Ride

One of the best parts of this ride is the experiences and the people you meet.
The sausage sizzle at the UWA Football Club was fantastic.  Here's a pic of team mate Cathie. Great to meet everyone there and hopefully we can do some more.
Had a great ride with Ali to Cottesloe last weekend.  Notching up the kms!
Funds raised total almost $1000.  Gotta keep on crankin!

Why I Ride

Thanks for reading my blog.

I am well and truly into training and when the going gets tough, I think of Yvette Guy (RIP) who I ride in memory of.

Yvette's battle went on for years and she made me promise to raise as much as I can to improve research so that no one else will go through what she did.  What an incredible lady she was.

I’m riding to beat cancer

There isn’t a single person I know that hasn’t been touched by cancer. 

In 2022, I’m taking a stand against cancer and backing the brilliant brains at the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research who are working hard to improve treatments and ease the suffering.

I’m training, fundraising and riding 200km to support WA cancer research. 

Eleven people close to me have experienced cancer.  Thanks to research, seven are still with us.  Four didn’t make it and the memory of their fight keeps me training and fundraising.  Whilst supporting a friend on a daily basis, I've seen how hard and fraught with danger, treatment can be.  I want to help to improve treatment and the chances of survival following diagnosis.  

I’d be so grateful for your support.

If you can’t join me on the ride with my Cranking for Cancer team (I’d love the company), please give generously to my fundraising page.

Together, we can help make cancer history.
