Damien Atklnson

Queensland Ride 2018

Damien lives in West End with his wife, Marilyn, and their children Leila and Arby. He is a barrister practising in commercial and medico-legal work, and has also worked in a voluntary capacity for many years as the chairman of the Youth Advocacy Centre, Petrie Terrace, Brisbane. In 2006, Damien and Marilyn lost their youngest child, Miriam, then 11 months old, after a prolonged struggle for a heart transplant. Ronald McDonald House was especially good to the family, providing a place to stay near the Royal Melbourne when they were caring for Miriam. They have many friends with families affected by autism and who have benefitted from the work of AEIOU, so they are deeply devoted to both of the 2018 charity partners. Plus it’s a heap of fun to ride with this mob…

Good on you Damien, riding in this event for another year to support these wonderful children's charities! Sorry we can't attend the fund raising night as we will be away overseas with friends riding the Otago Rail Trail...a much gentler affair! We wish you all the very best as you take on this next challenge in such a beautiful part of the world! Gerry and Julie xxx xx
