My target 200 kms

I’ve signed up to Cycle for Cancer!

I'm raising funds to support people diagnosed with cancer now and into the future by funding cancer research that focuses on improving survival rates, working toward a world where ALL people affected by cancer survive.

I'll tackle the KMs, but I need your support to reach my fundraising goal.

Will you support my fundraising?

Less then 72hrs to go 🤞🏼

Friday 3rd Sep
Hi Guys 

You may or may not be surprised to hear that I am participating in this Cycle for Cancer Event,  It’s designed for everyone to be able to participate by Cycling 100ks in a 7 day period from the 6th to 12th of September 2021.

You might think I’m crazy and deluded because I decided that I’m going to Cycle 200ks in one day.  I think  I’m up for the challenge, when my legs get tired I’m going to cycle with my heart.  It’s going to be tough and that’s why I really need your help.
I’ve chosen to conquer my ride on the 6th September my first day off shift from Meandu Mine. 
I’ll be riding on the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail it’s the longest rail trail in Australia spanning 161km from Yarraman through the Brisbane Valley to Wulkuraka west of Ipswich.  Then back tracking the last 39km that will be my biggest battle. 
The trail has diverse rural landscapes and the track is made up of compacted gravel/dirt & rocky sections with steep Rocky creek crossings and the Blackbutt range. 
The off-road terrain is going to be a challenge in itself but I feel that it’s safer option then riding on the road. 
My longest ride to date is 107ks on road so I’m definitely heading into the unknown.  I feel that the small amount of suffering that I’ll be enduring in a 24hr period is a small price to pay to be able to make a difference  to the lives of people whom are suffering with Cancer. 
This Charity that  I have chosen to support is the Mater Foundation in memory of Adam Smiddy, who passed away with an aggressive Melanoma aged 26. 
Mater Smiling for Smiddy delivers inspiring challenge events where individuals and communities alike can band together to raise funds for cancer research. 
I have raised of $5811  thanks to my awesome friends spanning as far as the Bowen Basin and the local community of Yarraman.

Thank you to everyone for your support, less then 72hrs ..... 🤞🏼🤞🏼
