My Story

Over the last 10years, I’ve participated in various charity rides raising funds for various causes. This time it’s a bit more personal.
The idea of the ride was originally initiated when we completed the 90km iron man bike ride leg in a team and passed on our medals to a dear friend whose only dream aside from living was to compete in an ironman. We wanted to do something extraordinary because she was extraordinary, fighting cancer with a smile on her face daily. Like all good ideas, it was put on the back burner till her funeral when we discussed it with close friends how we wanted to really do something to raise money for cancer and somehow feel like we were contributing to fighting this horrid disease. Over the past 5 years, we have lost numerous friends and family to the disease, each a different diagnosis, a different fight and a different story…but each with the same devastating outcome. The last 18 months has been the hardest for my family…. Being by a loved one’s side as they go through the fight of their life is a heart breaking, humbling and frustrating experience. We still miss each of these individuals daily.
I believe a facility such as the COUCH wellness centre can only improve the quality of life and treatment methods available to cancer patients and their families. The money we raise will not only help the COUCH wellness centre but encourage us to finish in high spirits.
