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 Foundation creates 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 allotment' 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 : )
