2020 Victoria Ride

Help me support kids in need

I am riding 1000 kilometres in 7 days from Hobart to Devonport in March to raise funds for kids in need.

Funds raised from this event will support major charity partners Starlight Children's Foundation and Very Special Kids.

Starlight Children’s Foundation has been a Chain Reaction supported charity since the ride’s foundation in 2007. Funds from Chain Reaction Challenge help SCF to operate the Starlight Express Room 7 days a week at the Monash Children’s Hospital. The Starlight Express Room is the place where kids can forget about being sick in hospital and just be kids. No doctors. No treatments. Just play.

Very Special Kids cares for children with life-threatening conditions by providing a children’s hospice and professional support services to families. Chain Reaction funds will be spent directly on undertaking a major upgrade the 20-year-old hospice, bringing it in-line with modern medical support so they can support more kids and families, including teens and adolescents who are living beyond expectations.

Please support my efforts on the bike with a donation and be part of changing the lives of kids in need!
