2019 NSW Ride

Help me support kids in need

The last 12 months have been a challenging time for me and this has strengthened my resolve to support others that are less able to look after themselves.

Chain Reaction is the Ultimate Corporate Bike Challenge that raises money for sick children by challenging senior executives who have a passion for cycling and an awareness of their corporate social responsibilities, to ride a 1,000 plus kilometre course in 7 days.  This year we are supporting the Starlight Children's Foundation who help brighten the lives of kids in hospital by helping them forget they're sick through the Starlight Express Room and 'Rocket Rounds' where Starlight Captains visit children around the wards. Working in partnership with healthcare professionals, Starlight replaces pain, fear and stress with fun, joy and laughter. Starlight programs embrace the principles of positive psychology where fun is an important factor in contributing to overall wellbeing.

When my daughter Juliette was diagnosed with Luekaemia at the age of 3 she had two years of intensive chemotherapy mainly delivered during lengthy stays at Westmead Children's Hospital.  During that time we experienced the difference made by the Starlight Children's Foundation in helping her enjoy her childhood at a time when she was surrounded by doctors, needles, central lines and feeling terrible from the side effects of the drugs.  This is my way of giving back.  I am also pleased to report that Juliette is now a happy normal 18 year old just starting out her university degree.

Help me support kids in need by donating to this great cause.

Thank you to my donors
