Paul Burns

January Distance Challenge

I'm Riding for a reason in January because a Legend of the Broadway Bunch Justin Fanning AKA Carlton Draught is fighting cancer. As a Bunch we want to support him and others who are fighting cancer.

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

With one in two Australians diagnosed with cancer before the age of 85, the need to find better ways to detect and treat cancer is real.

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