The Long Run, Walk & CycleSaturday 22nd Aug
I am taking part in The Long Run, a fundraising event to help Australian men and families impacted by prostate cancer.
I am deeply touched with the support and encouragement from family, friends and total strangers.
I began cycling some weeks ago to prepare me for the event which officially commences on 01-30 September.
I aim to do the 72km and will just keep on going as the donations roll in. Currently on my page these are my trial practice trips.
I have been most fortunate with sponsors even in this very difficult financial time.
People are just AWESOME!
For me, it is a truly humbling experience as I have never fund raised before!
I wish to thank all of you who have encouraged me and spurred me on.
Thank you to my Sponsors
