I'm challenging myself to ride 21ks each day for 21 days. ON AN AIRSTRIP!
I am taking on Challenge 21, as part of the CYCLE4SAM team, to raise funds to support sick kids who are cared for by the Women's and Children's Hospital. I'm a SA Country Fire Service Volunteer and for a number of years the SACFS has supported the Cycle4Sam 1000 km bike rides to raise funds for the hospital.
Sam Roberts suffered from a very rare disease called Neuman-Pick Type3 and he died just before his 5th birthday. The care Sam and his family Marty, Michelle, Charlie and Lucy experienced from the WCH resulted in the bike rides.
This year would have been Sam's 21 birthday, hence Challenge 21.
Every challenge has to involve the number 21 in some way.
I reckon my challenge is a unique one - The SACFS contracts a company called Aerotech to supply all the aircraft for the fire danger season: bombers, fixed wing aircraft and helicopters. Part of my work within the SACFS is with Air Operations. Claremont Air Base, owned by Aerotech is the resident home of the aircraft when the fire season is on. I'll be riding laps of the airstrip at the airbase!
Don't worry though, there won't be any aircraft on the airstrip while I'm there! So the SACFS and Aerotech are a part of my team and I'm a member of Team Cycle4Sam.
This is how the community works for the greater good.
The WCH Foundation relies on the generous contributions from the community to brighten the lives of patients and their families and support brilliant care at the Women’s and Children’s Hospital.
I'd love you to be a part of my team, follow my progress and support the challenge. Check the links or contact me and together we will make life a bit easier for the kids.
If you can it would be great to contribute by donating some funds. Could I humbly suggest a multiple of 21?
