WHY ARE YOU DOING THE RIDE?

Cycling from Perth to Laverton will be an enormous challenge and a fascinating experience. I have spent many hours in a vehicle driving around the Goldfields and this will bring a whole new perspective to being out on the ground and engaging with the local communities along the way.

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

This authentic project is offering the young children in Laverton a chance to learn cycling, to grasp responsibility on & off the bike, to learn how to fix things when there isn’t a lot of support around. The cycling development program is an original practical way to engage on so many levels with the young ones and it is something I would like to contribute too.

To fundraise for such a project gives me the opportunity to profile and promote Veris as a significant sponsor and their commitment to Indigenous reconciliation.
