The rubber hits the road today.
As I’ve mentioned before, next month I’ll be joined by ten other cyclists for a ride from Albany to Perth, honouring those who have battled cancer and the many more who have journeyed alongside a loved one who has faced this terrible disease. I’ll broadcast my morning radio programme on 98.5 Sonshine FM from a different town each morning before we jump on our bikes to ride to our next destination.
We’re just under a month away from the start of the ride and while everyone has been training for weeks, today is the first of our combned training rides. Many in the team will meet each other for the first time.
It won’t be a long or a fast ride but I’m really looking forward to seeing some connections develop that will help create a real team dynamic.
As well as getting ready to cycle over 500 kilometres next month, we’re all raising money for Cancer Council Western Australia and so while you may not be able to join our ride you can certainly help us reach our fundraising goals.
The team is hoping to raise over $15 000 for Cancer Council WA.
My personal goal is $1000. That means that I need 10 people to donate $100 or perhaps 20 to donate $50.
Can I ask you to consider donating $100 or $50 to help those facing cancer through Cancer Council WA? I know that not everyone can afford to give so generously so please feel free to give whatever you can. Every amount of $2 or above is tax deductible in Australia and will make a difference for so many.
You can donate directly by following this link.
The link will take you directly to the Cancer Council’s secure site. If you do donate to support me, can I ask that you leave a message on the site to tell me that you’re supporting me so that I can track those sponsoring my efforts? Alternatively you can email me to let me know you’ve donated.
If you know anyone in any of the towns along the way who you think would be a good contact, please let me know. If you can think of any other way you can help us with the event, please contact me.
Help spread the word.
