Peaks Challenge for Kath
On November 16th 2019, my sister Kath lost her battle with Ovarian cancer - she was only 45.
Over the previous five years, she endured a hysterectomy, chemotherapy, radiation, remission, relapse, spinal surgery (resulting in her last 6 months in a wheelchair), as well as a brain tumour, that ultimately took her from us.
I had initially set myself a big challenge to raise money for a 'hand-control' car, for more independence, and mobility, with her being in a wheelchair.
I still have the same big challenge, but now it's a tribute to her, and the amazing life she led.
On March 8th, I'm participating in the 'Three Peaks Challenge' bike ride, being held at Falls Creek. For non-cyclists, it's best described as a "day" in the Tour De France. For cyclists, you'll understand what I'm faced with, as it's a ride of 235km - and 4000m of climbing. Neither of these, I've done before.
As a perspective on the event, there is a 13 hour cut-off window. I'll hopefully do it in less than 12 hours.
Please support my efforts, and ensure that this 'tribute' to Kath is something that will help support the Cancer Council in their mission for a cancer free future.
Because 1 in 2 Australians will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime, I’m putting my body to the test to raise funds and show my support.
I can surely put my body to the test for only 12 hours - Kath did it for 5 years.
Please sponsor me to support cancer research and provide vital services for Australians living with cancer.
Thank you for your generous donation. Together, we can free the future from cancer.
