Ben Friis-O'Toole

2019 NSW Ride

Help me support kids in need

This will be my first Chain Reaction Challenge.  We'll be riding from Melbourne to Sydney via the Snowy Mountains in support of Starlight children's foundation.  

Starlight is a fantastic organisation.  And as the proud dad of a soon-to-be 2 year old, I can really appreciate just how important Starlight is for sick kids and their families.

During the 7 day ride, we'll cover 1,000 km and climb 14,500 metres (according to Wikipedia, Everest is a measly 8,848 metres).  Not sure I'll make it over the mountains without your generous support! 

Off the bike, I am a senior associate at Arnold Bloch Leibler, practising in the firm's litigation group.  I am very pleased to continue ABL's longstanding involvement with this great event.

Thank you for helping support kids in need.

And thank you to ABL and to my family for making it possible to partipate in Chain Reaction 2019.

Thank you to my donors

Hello Ben. I am proud of what you are doing for these children. I wish you courage to overcome the burning in your thighs and not surrender to that pain. Use your will power to overcome the urge to stop because you can conquer those mountains.
