I'm taking the Challenge to fight MS!

I am taking part in the MS Gong Ride Virtual, the Ride to Fight MS.

I start my challenge on 1 October. You will be able to see my progress here on this page and if you wish add a donation to support the cause.

Why am I fundraising?

Put simply, MS is hideous disease that affects my beautiful wife, Liz and I feel helpless to combat it. This way I can do something practical to raise funds for smarter people than me that might find a cure for her and many others with MS. 

If you choose to donate, then I thank you for your support.

500k in October - Done. Thank you to the sponsors - fundraised over 4,400 now!.
So I’m riding the last few k into Paris along the Champs-Elysees to complete the 500k for October and Liz comes out the door with a kitchen bowl in her hand. It looked like compost to me, and I duck as she starts throwing it all over me. Turned out to be rose petals! Then I cross the finish line and she gets me a yellow shirt, a laurel wreath, a bear (Mr.Bean!) and flowers.. aawh. She did try to video it too but turned the video off instead of starting it.. haha

Thank you to all our sponsors - from Jed and Liz

Saturday 31st Oct
A big thanks for all the funding support.  They say I'm in the top 20 of the fundraisers this year.  Very humbled that I only really asked for $ last Saturday and a week raised nearly $4k.  wow.

Liz is very happy too!

THANK YOU!

Last day on the bike

Saturday 31st Oct
Thanks for all your support everyone.  Last 30 k is today.. 

It's very wet on the verandah today....so drips of sweat may not be easy distinguished from the rain pouring in from the side winds.. 

I plan to ride the Champs-Elysees on the last bit....  why not hey?

Wwwwwwrrrrrrrrr

Sunday 25th Oct
My neighbour is half a kilometer away and he kindly donated and said ...hey and I thought you’d bought a new power tool..

I’ve sent a thank you email with a stack of these

Wwwwwrrrrrrrrrrrr wwwwrrrrrr wwwwwwwrrrrrrr wrrrrr !!!
