Injury preventing me ride this weekend in the TDU

Well............. unfortunately I had a small tumble on the bike during the week and doctor recommended me not to ride on Saturday. No breaks just some bad sprains and bruises.

I was looking forward to it, but that makes me even more determined to ride next year.

But the positive news is that it allows me to work with the Cancer Council on Saturday in Strathalbyn and help the wonderful team spread the message on being sun smart and still enjoy the day.

Thanks again for all your support and we all raised an amazing $2880

Look forward to your support again next year, and hope to see you at Strath on Saturday.

Have a wonderful 2019.

I'm Riding ( and running ) for a Reason to support the Cancer Council of South Australia

Hi friends and family

In Oct 2015 my father Rafic, passed away after a very short illness to multiple myeloma.

Most people have been touched by cancer in some way, shape or form and since Dad's passing my mission has been to educate others on how it is possible to lower the risk of cancer with a change in lifestyle in both diet and exercise.

Last year I raised $2000 for the Leukemia Foundation, which was an amazing effort by everyone that supported me.

This year I have partnered with the Cancer Council of South Australia and the wonderful initiative which is Ride for a Reason.

The money raised through Ride for a Reason enables Cancer Council to fund vital prevention, research, advocacy and support programs that improve and save lives. 

Over the next 5 months I have set myself the following goals.:

  • Run the 10km Glenelg Classic in November 2018

  • Ride the 102km 2019 Challenge Tour from Myponga to Strathalbyn

  • And most importantly I have set a goal to raise $3000 for the Cancer Council of South Australia

It is going to be a huge challenge, but I am confident we can raise $3000 together and any donation large or small would be amazing.

Please share via your group of friends, family and work colleagues.

If you are also raising money for a charity or a cause that you are passionate about, I will be more then happy to share it via my network.

I will keep you updated with my progress and a big thanks on behalf of the Cancer Council of South Australia for your generous donation.
