Challenge in the Tropics 2022

A Fiver For More Survivors

In late April & early May, I’ll be joining the 2022 Challenge in the Tropics, cycling up to 700 kms over five days.

Why am I taking on this challenge?

Because I’m committed to making a real impact for cancer research at Mater. I said goodbye to my mentor Alan Maxwell on the 8th of September 2015 and I have been raising funds in his honour since 2014.

As part of the challenge I’m aiming to raise valuable funds to support the work of Mater Research—Mater’s world-class research institute that’s investing in some game-changing work into the causes, treatment and prevention of cancer.

And this is where I need your help.

Together, we can help to give more families more time together; to make more memories. 

Will you support my fundraising by making a donation to my fundraising page today?
