I'm Riding for a reason in January

Over 8 years ago, my husband and I took up cycling to ride in the Tour Down Under Cancer Council SA’s Ride For A Reason to raise valuable funds for Cancer research.

Little did I know that seven years later in February 2018, my husband would be diagnosed with an incurable cancer, Multiple Myeloma (MM).  After extensive treatment, his MM was under control.

Just before Christmas 2019, we found out his cancer has returned, yet this inspirational man is still training with me to ride in the 2020 TDU.  Whoo Hoo!

The money raised through Ride for a Reason enables Cancer Council to fund vital prevention, research, advocacy and support programs that save lives. 

Please donate to the Behind Closed Doors Team or to me, to support my ride with David and help us work towards a cancer free future and a cure for Multiple Myeloma.

Warmly, Donny
