NSW Ride 2019

Help me support kids in need

Josh has been riding with Chain Reaction NSW for several years and is returning for his third Chain Reaction Challenge, having completed a gruelling 1,000km of riding through Far North Queensland in 2016 and South Australia in 2018.

Josh is proud to support the Chain Reaction Foundation in 2019 to raise funds for the Starlight Children's Foundation which helps sick kids forget they are sick by providing a place to play, laugh and spend time away from doctors and medical treatments at the Starlight Express Room. 

Funds from the 2019 event will support the Starlight Express Room at Sydney Children’s Hospital, ensuring that children have a place to forget they are sick and enjoy the programs, games and entertainment provided by Captain Starlight.

With three young kids, he understands the fragile nature of children’s health. During the 20 week scan for his youngest daughter, Tahlia, a congenital abnormality was identified. Luckily she has been healthy since birth but there are many families who are less fortunate.

For Josh, participating in Chain Reaction has been both a rewarding and transformational experience. He is looking forward to this year’s ride from Melbourne to Sydney through some the best climbs in the Victorian Alps and Snowy Mountains whilst renewing old friendships, developing new friendships and helping contribute to an extremely worthy cause.

Thank you to my donors
