I have decided to take on a challenge, the Redline Classic in October 2012, a three day, cross state bike ride of 444km’s taking in the Adelaide Hills, Barossa and Mid-north areas of South Australia.
Why am I doing this? Primarily to raise money for charity - namely the Leukemia Foundation.
The Leukemia Foundation is very important to me - for those that do not know the story of Stephen Morgan - please let me tell you what happened. Stephen was married to wife's cousin, Natalie. A few years ago, they went on a family holiday to Mt Gambier, and on returning felt like he something like a bad flu - and three days latter he died from complications from undiagnosed Leukemia, leaving behind two young sons and a pregnant wife. From tragedy comes triumph, and Natalie has risen to the challenge and is inspirational on how she works tirelessly to raise a family, whilst spearheading fundraising and awareness of Leukemia. Her challenges this year to help include running the New York City Marathon and riding in the Redline Classic, all in the aid of the Leukemia Foundation. As my knees are no longer capable of running, I have opted to go for the bike ride instead and try and do my part for this worthy cause.
The Redline Classic is primarily raising money for the Crows Foundation, but have agreed to help support our cause and allow us to join in on the ride and use there facilities, websites and expertise in this adventure.
Be rest assured, I am personally covering all the costs of this ride, the money I raise will go straight to the charities - and donations are tax deductible.
Please make sure you pick my name form the list as well :-)
Thanks in Advance
