That’s right – I’m going to ride 200km over 2 days to raise money to find a cure for cancer.
Last year, with the amazing love and generosity from my incredible supporters, we raised a total of $17,160 and I was ranked 12th highest individual fund raiser and given the title of Silver Ambassador! Truly an honour for such an important cause.
So why am I doing this again?
1) It was such a fantastic experience – that I want to do it again.
2) It is a worthy cause. I know there are thousands of charities out there… but I feel a deep resonance towards the West Australian Institute of Medical Research. They are an established and large team of scientists in my home town, doing internationally recognised cancer research… and all the money raised will go directly towards their actual research and projects, which will help everyone around the world.
3) I love cycling. I enjoy keeping fit, staying healthy and having a big fitness goal!
4) I want to make a difference. I want to do something significant. I want to use my voice and my blog to get behind something bigger than me. My husband is alive, and my children have their father, because of cancer research that was done decades ago, and now there is so much more work to be done to find more cures and improve treatments.
So… I would love for you to dig deep and support my ride!
(It’s my birthday tomorrow!!)
