WHY ARE YOU DOING THE RIDE?

I am thrilled to once again participate in the Perth to Laverton Classic. Having grown up in Kalgoorlie at a time when there were very few sporting clubs and certainly no youth development programs, being able to help the remote areas of our culturally and mineral rich goldfield communities is a great thrill for me.

If I can help the group give hope to a child with none, or inspire a child to dream, then that is huge for me.

WHY DO YOU WANT TO FUNDRAISE FOR THE PERTH LAVERTON CYCLING PROJECT?

The time spent with the Laverton kids is very enjoyable. I love their enthusiasm, their excitement and their care for each other and watching the kids shine from the interaction is truly very special.

The breathtaking scenery and vast emptiness is as awe inspiring as it is brutally ruthless. I love the simplicity of life in the desert, the knowledge that we are only on this earth for 70-80 years, but we can destroy the fragile environmental balance and 40,000 years of cultural history so easily. The experience has helped open my eyes to things I was blind of, even though I grew up in the midst of it.
