I'm Riding for a Reason in January 2020

I’m challenging myself during the 2020 Santos Tour Down Under this January with the Ride for a Reason team to fundraise and help us work towards a cancer free future!

The need to find better ways to detect and treat cancer is very real.

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

I am happy to continue fundraising for Cancer Council SA. I have found the team are committed to and enthusiastic in their work.

Last year I dedicated my "Ride For A Reason" to my wife Margaret who is in remission after Ovarian cancer has been dealt with.

This year I am dedicating the effort to a dear friend Elaine Johansen who right now coping with a severe and rare case of lung cancer soon after having had surgery to remove cancer from her neck. 

(I am editing this page to advise that Elaine has lost her battle with Cancer and she has died peacefully Sunday 17 November 2019 - a sad day)

Please donate to support my ride and help us work towards a cancer free future!

Thanks JP
