Help us fight cancer

For the fourth consecutive year, my 9-year-old daughter Mariam and I are honoured to be riding our bikes in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids’ cancer! The previous three years saw us raising over $17,000 with your generous and amazing support.  The Great Cycle Challenge is the annual fundraiser for the Children’s Medical Research Institute (CMRI) in Sydney’s Westmead, kicking off every year on 1st October. Last year saw over 8,000 riders from all walks of life across Australia and beyond signed up to help raise funds and awareness for kids fighting cancer. Entry is free and each rider who raises more than $500 will be given a free cycling jersey. Fundraising and riding goals are set individually by each rider and can range from 1 km to a few hundred km. Family, friends, colleagues and local businesses then sponsor the cycling efforts via each rider’s individual fundraising page. If you like to ride your bike or enjoy a spin class at the gym, why not sign up yourself and start fundraising to support kids with cancer?! Cancer is still the largest killer of children from disease in Australia – over 600 children are diagnosed with cancer every year and sadly, three children die from cancer every week.
