“I anticipate the joy of the Gong Ride just like a kid would Christmas.”
Angelo Lofitis’s Gong Ride journey began 9 years ago while sitting around a camp fire with 5 friends discussing their concerns for his wife Megan’s future health, as she had been recently diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. It was then and there they decided to participate in the 2008 Sydney to the Gong Ride and through the support of their local community and work sponsors, they raised an astonishing $18,500 - earning them the nickname TOP RAISERS from their supporters.
Angelo has found captaining a very successful fundraising team to be one of his greatest achievements, and it has allowed him to grow as a person. His passion for fundraising is driven by his firsthand experience with the support and assistance MS services provide Megan and many others. Angelo hasn’t missed a Gong Ride since his first and now does it not just for his wife, but for all people living with multiple sclerosis and their families.
