Releasing Children from Poverty


25000 Spins is a non-profit business dedicated to making a difference to children in need. Their vision is to not only make the lives of children better but to empower and challenge people to get involved in the cause through physical challenges.

Together with a few friends, I’m about to head to Victoria to take on the Great Ocean Road Challenge. The ride is raising money for ADRA, Compassion and Botswana Orphan Project.

There’ll be several dozen people taking part overall but within my group of friends from Western Australia, there’s Mark Rose, Derek Roper and Stewart Horne.

Our chosen charity is Compassion and we’re extremely grateful for everyone who has donated so far and helped us release children from poverty but we still have a long way to go to raise much needed funds for Compassion.

We’ll be riding 290 kilometres and battling some serious hills over three days and we need your support. By sponsoring our efforts on the challenge you’ll be releasing children from poverty. You’ll be giving children a real chance at life.

If you want to sponsor any of us just choose which rider you’re sponsoring and click on the link below.

It’ll be the second time I’ve taken on this challenge to raise money for Compassion and to release children from poverty.

Having seen first hand, both in Haiti and Dominican Republic, how effective Compassion’s work is, I am determined to do what I can to help.

Maybe you can afford to sponsor us for a dollar a kilometre, maybe 50 cents a kilometre, or perhaps you’d just like to donate $10, $20, $50 or any other amount.

Please help us save some lives. Please make your donation, large or small, and then share this post in as many ways as you can so that more people will get on board and more lives will be saved.
