Why I am supporting The Kids' Cancer Project

My Story

As you all know we have our little one Charlotte, she is a health happy little person. We are so fortunate. I am doing Fitz's to challenge myself and what a bonus to have the opportunity to raise funds for Kids with cancer. Keep in mind these incredible little people show so much courage and perseverance every day. If you could consider donating that would be incredible. Any amount you can give makes a difference for these young . Thank you for your generosity and support -- it means a lot to me. More to the point it means so much to the kids and their families. I'll be doing my best on the ride and will embrace all those hills. Also thanks to Jez, Mega and Bob for putting up with me and encouraging me on all our rides, you guys are legends!!!

About 2017 Fitz’s Challenge

About Fitz’s Challenge

Fitz’s Challenge is renowned for the amount of challenging, but achievable climbing required within each distance.

Any human powered cycle that is legal to be ridden on ACT roads has been approved by event organiser’s to be used in Fitz’s Challenge. This includes handcycles, tandems, recumbent bikes, tricycles, unicycles and kick bikes.

Fitz’s Challenge has established enough credibility within the cycling community that the 210km and 255km cycling events have been approved as official Audax Alpine Classic qualification rides.

The more advanced distances require participants to ride up Fitz’s Hill as part of their course, which is how the event originally received its name.

Since 2009, The Kids’ Cancer Project has been Fitz’s Challenge official charity partner. Cyclists participating in this event have raised more than $333,000 to date for childhood cancer research.

About my cause: The Kids' Cancer Project

About The Kids’ Cancer Project
The Kids’ Cancer Project is an independent national charity supporting childhood cancer research.
Kids get different types of cancer to adults. Research is the key to discovering more targeted and effective ways to help them.
Since 1993, thanks to strong community support, the charity has contributed tens of millions of dollars to scientific research projects to help children with many types of cancer.
Founder, Col Reynolds OAM, has a steely focus to make a difference to the lives of kids living with the disease. It all started on an ordinary day in the early 1990s when Col found himself driving his empty tourist coach past the Children’s Hospital in Camperdown, Sydney. After stopping to let two youngsters with bald heads cross the road, he parked his vehicle and went into the hospital on the spur of the moment. Touched by the spirit of everyone he met that day, Col made it his personal mission to help kids with cancer in any way he could.
Very early in his quest, Col learned that the only way to improve outcomes for these children is through advances in medical research.
