Tour Down Under Challenge Tour

I'm Riding for a reason in January

I’m challenging myself to ride the 162km stage from Norwood to Murray Bridge during the 2020 Santos Tour Down Under this January.

The main reason is to honour the memory of a friend and colleague who taught me so much during her battle with cancer. Seeing her will to live, despite adversity still gives me a reference point that things are never as bad as they may seem. Life is short, you only get from it by what you put in. Live each day as it comes.

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

Please make a tax deductible donation to support my ride and help us work towards a cancer free future!
