2020 Victoria Ride

Stepping Out of My Comfort Zone...

I need your help as I embark on a gruelling challenge to hopefully make a difference.

On 7th March, I’ll be joining a small team to ride 1,000 kilometres in 7 days across Tasmania, climbing 13,000m of elevation (equivalent of 1.5x Mount Everest) in conditions which can range from -4 to +40 degrees celcius.

Our ride has a purpose - to help kids be the best version of themselves in their greatest time of need... We’ll be raising money for two organisations providing critical support:

  • Very Special Kids steps in when the prognosis is terminal to make things as good as they can be from the hospice to the home.
  • Starlight Children’s Foundationcreates spaces in hospitals where kids can forget about being sick - no doctors - no treatment - just play.

My own family started spending a lot of time in hospitals when my sister Julie arrived - she was a very special kid (and she still is!). We moved out of home & into the ward while Julie endured over 30 operations in her first 3 years of life. She’s still with us today thanks to the help & support of many amazing people. Now it’s my turn to return the favour. 

I would very much appreciate your support in backing these two great charities.

Donations are tax deductible & may be made via the link above... 

To help in pushing all boundaries here, contributions of A$300 or more will form part of a random draw for a case of Tolpuddle Pinot Noir (rare & arguably one of the best ex-Tassie) being put forward by the Tasker family trust... 

Any support you can provide, small, big or ludicrous(!), would be greatly appreciated.

With sincere thanks & appreciation in advance,

Paul : )
