2021 Sydney Challenge

Help me support kids in need

Hello! Thank you for visiting my page. I hope you and your family are well.

I have been fortunate to have been involved in Chain Reaction since 2014 after catching the cycling bug when I moved from Melbourne to Brisbane. 

Over that time I have made some incredible friends and helped raise funds for amazing children's charities. I am so excited to take part in CRSYD2021 and am asking for your support to help me raise funds for kids in need and their families. The past 12 months have been particularly challenging for many for obvious reasons. If you can help with a donation, I’d be most grateful. 

On a personal note, Chain Reaction has taken on additional meaning since becoming a dad in 2019 with the healthy and safe arrival of Scarlett. I once heard a former colleague of mine tell his young son that he was doing Chain Reaction for his son's mates that weren't so fortunate. Now that I'm a dad, I'm riding and raising money for those who need a helping hand.

Thanks in advance for any donation you may be able to provide, and please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or would like to know how to get involved in Chain Reaction.

When not riding, Matt is a Managing Director at FTI Consulting in Sydney.

Thank You To My Donors
