HPRW member and Team Mainline rider Andrew Grady is riding the Tour De Cure from Sydney to the Sunshine Coast in support of a cure for cancer.
Here's a message from Andrew:
Cancer is one of the world's greatest takers of life. Cancer does not discriminate. It affects
men, women and children alike and it impacts everyone around them.
The Tour de Cure is an annual cycling event that raises much needed funds
for Cancer research, prevention and patient support programs. This year
the Tour will see 90 riders & supporters travel over 1400km from Sydney
to the Sunshine Coast for 10 days in May.
I’ve signed up to complete the Tour de Cure in support of all my family and friends that
have been touched by Cancer. After personal diagnosis with Melanoma at 25, I realised that
Cancer really can affect anyone. Too many, too young.
I’ll be doing the pedalling, but one of my main inspirations is my wife’s father, who has
been fighting pancreatic cancer for 3 years. Thankfully after surgery and countless chemo
sessions ‘Poppy’ is still able to walk his 18 holes of golf, and watch his grand-children
grow up. Ours is just one of many stories where Cancer research and support have helped
a whole family.
We’ve set a huge fundraising target of $10 000, so any contribution you can make will be greatly appreciated.
