About Fitness First 6hr Ride For Sarah

Join us at Fitness First Sylvania for the 3rd annual “Starlight Ride For Sarah”, and support Starlight Children’s Foundation. ALL riders are welcome, including non- Fitness First members!
When: Saturday 22nd September 2018, 6.30am - 12.30pm
Where: Fitness First Sylvania
What: 6 hours of indoor spin cycle riding in 12 x 30 min classes. You're welcome to join us for 1 or as many classes as you like :)
How:  it's easy to start peddling your way to making a huge difference for sick kids:

+ Set up your fundraising page, and share the link with your friends, family and colleagues.
+ If you haven't already, make sure you book your bike, for just half an hour, or for the full event! You can book in for as many classes as you like, $5 per class. Limited to 50 bikes per class, so book now!

Since 2016, we’ve raised over $30K which has helped to brighten the hospital experience of over 770 kids in the fabulous Starlight Express Rooms. It’s these rooms that help sick kids be kids again by replacing fear and pain with fun, joy and laughter.

How can you help?
We will be hosting 6 hours of indoor spin cycle riding in 12 x 30 min classes, running back to back. You will be lead by 12 different instructors and inspired by 12 different music themes.
We'll also have prizes, auctions, and raffles all day, with ALL proceeds donated directly to Starlight.

Not up for riding?
No worries, why not donate instead?
Every dollar counts to help brighten the lives of seriously ill children. This year we’d like to raise $20k which will help put smiles on the faces of over 500 sick kids, just like Sarah.

Follow us on Facebook for regular updates on the ride, the instructors, classes, prizes, auctions and our sponsors.

Why?

In July 2016, Sarah was a healthy and active 9yr old girl participating in numerous sports. Progressively she had complained of an increasingly sore right shin and ankle. After visiting a physiotherapist for multiple x-ray’s, Sarah was the admitted to Sydney Children’s Hospital Randwick where it was formally identified she had ‘Osteosarcoma’ – an aggressive form of bone tumor in her right tibia.

A permanent line was surgically installed and a 3 stage process followed including approx 3 months of initial chemotherapy, major 10 hour surgical procedure to remove the section of bone effected by the tumor, external radiation, reinsertion, bone graft and installation of a plate. This was the subsequently followed by plastic surgery and another 4 months of chemotherapy.

It was here Sarah met Captain Starlight who helped her, and her family through the many operations and treatments. Starlight kept Sarah laughing through the pain and boredom of hospitalisation, ensuring that she continued to wear that indelible smile despite facing the harshest adversity.

On her 10th birthday, Sarah proudly rang the oncology ward ‘victory bell’ confirming she had beaten the cancer. And whilst there will be initial ongoing rehabilitation, the outlook now is positive.

There are many beautiful children and families who also are dealing with such affliction and we would love to help brighten their lives in hospital by donating to Starlight Children’s Foundation.

Any support that you can give will be appreciated greatly by Starlight Children’s Foundation, our Fitness First community, Sarah and her family.

About Starlight Children's Foundation

Starlight's mission is "To brighten the lives of seriously ill children and their families".

Because sick kids are still kids at heart...

When a once-bright life becomes dulled by needles, hospital visits and painful treatments, Starlight helps sick kids forget their illness and re-discover the joy of childhood.

We know there's more to treatment than medicine. That's why since 1988, we've partnered with Australian health professionals to develop programs based on positive psychology principles that support the 'total care' of our children and teens.

Like the young people in our care, we are distinctly Australian. Our unique programs are the result of extensive research and respond to the specific needs of Aussie kids and teens.

We know what kids and their families are facing when serious illness or injury consumes their lives.

We disrupt the relentless cycle of pain and trauma and offer a welcome break so that sick kids can simply be kids.

We believe fun fights fear and wins every time.
