I'm Riding for a Reason in January
As part of the Cancer Council’s Bupa Challenge Tour in the Santos Tour Down Under (TDU), I’m very excited to be riding in Cancer Council’s Ride for a Reason (RFAR) team in January 2019. I am also a member of the Lead Out Team and this will be my 7th RFAR TDU ride.
I will tackle this stage of the Tour along with 600 other cyclists, as a united team with one goal - to help all those affected by cancer. This RFAR TDU will be most significant because earlier this year my husband was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma (MM), an incurable cancer and I am raising funds to help find a cure for this type of blood cancer. In addition, the man and friend who inspired me to take up cycling eight years ago, Geoff Knight, lost his cancer fight a week ago and another friend died of MM a few months ago. I will be riding for all three men and the many friends, family and colleagues inflicted with this scary disease.
Every five minutes, one Australian is diagnosed with cancer, changing their lives, and the lives of their friends and families forever. I’m proud to be helping to raise money that will lead to better ways to detect and treat cancer, so that less families experience this devastation.
Unfortunately, we have all had a family member, friend or work colleague that has cancer, is asurvivor of cancer who have lost their lives to cancer.
I’d be grateful if you would support my effort to help beat cancer, by making a tax-deductible donation to support my fundraising. Your contribution would mean a great deal to me and will help save lives.
Thanks for supporting me and for giving hope to so many. Please donate to support my ride and let’s beat cancer together!
Warmest wishes Donny
