Help me support kids in need

This year I have again realised how fortunate I am, and that there are those who need a little help...
I enjoy riding bikes and being in nature, and I am fortunate enough to combine these two passions to help children in need.
I have embarked on a mad dash to lose 10kg and drag myself up some mountains in March 2023 and need your help to achieve my fundraising target!
Its a little inconvenience for us... It means the world to them!

My Updates

Day 1 Done

It’s as a great start to the Chain Reaction Challenge, with day 1 around Christchurch.  The punchy climb at the end tested the legs a little, but the scenery more than made up for the effort.

If it was a taste of what is to come… It is going to be an amazing week!

Was sunny and hot today with clear skies… Forecast for tomorrow is wet and windy…

Gonna be fun :)

Hard work pays off!

With a week to go, the nerves are gone and excitement has set in!

I have reached my target distance this week (2000km) and feeling good and Lighter (Lost 11kg!).

It has been a great journey to get to this point, and appreciate all the support.

I am still shy of my fund raising target, but have no doubt I will get there in the end!

Happier and Healthier

With 4 weeks to go, the rides are getting longer and the climbs steeper…  Hit the mountains this weekend with a 140km ride. 

Brisbane is really pretty this time of the year - but man “it-HOT”. 


Close to home...

Across my work and social network, I am amazed at how many people have had events in their lives that affected their new born babies, or caused their kids to spend significant time in hospitals in their early years...  I am so fortunate to do what I enjoy, and through it, make a small difference in those who most need it.

With every Km ridden and Kg dropped - it doesn't get easier - just more worth it...

Pain is temporary - Mindset is key!

Having signed up for this challenge, and needing to get back into shape - FAST, reminded me again how gradual, consistent effort adds to longer term gains.  The daily hurt on the bike, building up to the overall goal, is insignificant in the greater scheme and forces me to "just get on with it"

Going through the preparation for such a great cause, makes the little bit of pain worth it...  
Looking forward to hitting the target of funds raised and kms in the saddle...
8 Weeks and counting...

Thank You To My Donors
