I’m going the distance to change the lives of country kids!

On Sunday 17 March I’ll be setting off from Merimbula to cycle over 330km to Cobargo to raise vital funds to support the developmental and mental health of Australia’s country kids.

Children and families living in rural and remote areas are still recovering from the impact of the 2019 bushfires. As we enter into another challenging bushfire season, I believe there is no greater time to ride and support these kids.

For these kids, a positive trajectory in life can be at risk if they can't access the right care at the right time, simply because of where they live.

I want to make a difference, so I’m going the distance to close the health gap for country kids. I’m riding to help raise $600,000 for country kids who are struggling with developmental and mental health needs to get them access to the critical assessments, services and support they need to thrive. 

You can help me achieve this by making a donation via this page AND by helping to spread the word by sharing my page. Every dollar of your donation – no matter how large or small - adds up to truly make a difference for country kids. Your gift will be directly support vulnerable country kids by connecting them to the vital healthcare services and support they urgently need.

THANK YOU so much for your support!  It really means a lot to me!

Thank you to my Sponsors
