Jason Mahoney was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia in November 2010 - life as his family knew it completely changed. His final treatment option was a bone marrow transplant, and whilst Jason fought hard, unfortunately his transplant was unsuccessful and he passed away the following September. During Jason’s illness, Fight Cancer Foundation supported him, his wife, and their three young girls.
To remember Jason and continue the fight he started, CureTOUR was founded to support those facing all-too similar battles.
The burden of cancer turns life upside down – unfortunately, we all know families who have faced this battle. Jason’s story is not unique which is why, in the fifth edition, CureTOUR sees a group of 16 passionate people coming together to ride for those fighting this battle. For many of the 16, it’s their family and friends.
CureTOUR 2018 is an opportunity to make a much-needed push to fundraise for Fight Cancer Foundation and support those suffering this dreadful disease.
What is the CureTOUR?
In 2018, the CureTOUR bike ride will depart Geelong on October 14th heading along the coast before inland to the mountains.
Over 1200kms later, on October 21st, the team will arrive in Adelaide - with the hope their efforts will present a cheque to Fight Cancer Foundation that will support the fight for many long beyond this day.
Who are we riding for?
A registered charity, Fight Cancer Foundation gives hope and saves lives; providing crucial care, treatment, and ongoing support for those with cancer, as well as funding research into better treatments and early detection tests. Their support cannot be spoken of more highly. Who are we supporting? It could be a mother, father, child, grandparent, or friend touched by cancer.
From our perspective – we are fundraising to support an important and extremely worthwhile cause.
How can you support the team?
We encourage you to join us by sponsoring the CureTOUR efforts. With your help, we will raise funds to support those fighting cancer. The burden exists for many and the help we provide goes a long way to care for these families and the treatment of this terrible disease – there’s plenty still to be done!
We look forward to sharing this challenging but worthwhile ride with you.
