$840.20 raised

Target: $1,000


In 2013, my good mate Sinclair had a life-saving double lung transplant at the Prince Charles Hospital. It's through critical transplant research funded by the Cycle of Giving that helps transplant recipients have a second chance at life and a shorter and fuller recovery. This year is my first year riding and I'm joining Sinclair in the 100km ride and I hope to raise $1000 that will fund around 23 hours of research. Thanks so much for reading and for making a difference if you can. šŸ˜„

I'm participating!

Thank you so so much to everyone who donated and encouraged me to do this most epic ride. I'm so pleased to say that Sinclair and I rode 105km on Sunday 10th of March in 32 degree heat in the Cycle of Giving 2019 event. It was an awesome day and a massive accomplishment for both of us. We're super proud of our efforts and very grateful for the support and donations from everyone. Over $214,000 was raised this year which funds over 4860 hours of organ transplant research - vital reasearch that saves the lives of amazing people like Sinclair and many, many others. Check out some of the photos from the day. Thanks again! :D
