Doing a Chain Reaction Challenge doesn't get any easier as the years tick by, but its easier than kids lives we support ...

Phil has cycled regularly over the years, but over the last couple of years has had a cycling hiatus due to injury and work commitments. However, Phil is now back and can be found most mornings on his Baum, battling around the Mosman Alps trying to rebuild his fitness, no easy task as the teeth get longer…

Phil completes several shorter charity rides each year but has saved his legs over the last decade or so for the Chain Reaction Challenges which are superbly organised and very professionally executed. ‘Cycling provides a wonderful opportunity to challenge myself, engage with like-minded people and make a meaningful contribution to less fortunate children through being involved with the Chain Reaction Foundation.’

With two teenage children and understanding the tenuous nature of children's health this opportunity to help children less fortunate than Phil's, ticked all the boxes for him.

Phil is keen to take on the NSW challenge with the 2021 Chain Reaction riding 1000 kilometres in seven days around regional NSW in April to raise funds for kids in need.

Thank You To My Donors
