Hello $10,000

30 August 2012

I have some AMAZING NEWS!!

Fundraising for my Ride to Conquer Cancer Event has gone extraordinarily well. I have currently raised $9,944!! Which means I need something like $56 to get me to my goal of $10,000! YEEEHA!

I’m so excited and thrilled… I feel an explosive combination being overjoyed from the bottom of my heart and being totally crazy scared!

It’s an incredible feeling to have a dream, set a goal, and now be so so so close to reaching it. I’m grateful, humbled, relieved and still very driven and focused to make a big difference.

I have decided to raise my goal to $15,000 now, because I feel that I can still do even more fundraising work. There is so much work to be done to defeat cancer, I just can’t sit back now and say “I’m done”.

Anyway, to celebrate, I thought I would share this picture.

Cycling 100km

I rode my first 100kms (all in one go) the other day!

Yes, I rode my bike until it was 99.98km and walked for 20m until my clock ticked over to the big 100. Woooot!

To put this into perspective, my cycling event in October is 200km over 2 days, so I’m halfway there, kind of! (Riding 100 km for two days back to back is bound to be much more difficult!)

Thank you to all the kind, wonderful, generous people who have made a donation to this worthy cause so far. Your support means so much to me, thank you.

If you are interested in supporting my ride, you can go to my donations page and make any donation amount you wish – $20, $50, $100, $500! You can leave a public message, or a personal message to me, or just do it anonymously. And you get a receipt, so you can claim this against your tax.

The money goes immediately and directly to cancer research.

Thank you for your support.
