Help me support kids in need

Having finally mastered the art of drinking from a water bottle while pedaling, I have signed up to cycle 300+ kms in 3 days from Brisbane to the Sunshine Coast this October to raise money for kids in need.

The event raises money to support two fantastic kids’ charities, the AEIOU Foundation for children with Austism and the Mater Foundation which looks after critically ill children.

I feel very lucky to have three healthy children and to have received so much help along the way, especially when my twins Penny and Tom arrived.  I’m excited about the opportunity to give back and help families who need it more than I ever have. 

Needless to say, I have thrown myself into shopping for bike accessories with the same enthusiasm I display for clothes, and am slowly getting better with the 4.20am wake-up time for training sessions.    

I’m loving being part of this great event and for the opportunity to play a small part in changing the lives of kids in need.  Any support would be very gratefully received.


Thank you to my donors
