2021 Sydney Challenge

Help me support kids in need

Two years ago, I took on my first Chain Reaction Challenge covering 1000kms+ over seven days from Melbourne to Sydney. This year, I am jumping back on my bike but this time I start in Coffs Harbour and will be cycling all the way down to Sydney from 6th to 12th April!


As most of you know, I am an avid cyclist so I feel lucky enough to be able to combine doing what I love with, more importantly, raising funds for our main charity partner, the Starlight Children’s Foundation.

The Starlight Foundation’s support of children and their families undergoing the impacts of serious hospitalisation is legendary but unrelenting in its need for the type of support that only you can bring – funds

Any donation you make whatever the value will make a positive impact on helping the Foundation continue to support these children and their families!

Thank you x

Thank You To My Donors
