Two bits of amazing news
Amazing News 1
As much as I’m looking forward to the ride on Saturday I’ve also been dreading it. 140 miles in two days on one weeks training! The last weeks training has been hard work and a complete shock to my system as I’ve never really done any long distance bike riding before.
But I now have the best source of energy ever… My mum and big brother are coming over to support me on the ride. My mum is going to volunteer and my brother is going to ride next to me.
I can’t even begin to describe how excited I am. I haven’t seen them in over 11 months and have missed them like crazy. I only wish my dad could make it over as well.
My brother and I have never done anything like this together before. He has always been the one undertaking these kind of crazy challenges with me usually looking at him in awe. It will be an amazing experience to have him ride next to me and I know he will help me achieve what is without doubt my biggest challenge yet.

I am going to volunteer at The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp in July. I am so honoured to be able to do this as this is the type of healing that I believe to be the most effective, having fun and experiencing joy!
Every person I have spoken to here in the states has raved about this camp and the great things it does for seriously ill children.
A little bit about The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp
The camp’s founder, actor Paul Newman wanted a place that ensured that every child with a serious medical condition had the chance to experience the world of possibilities that camp has to offer. Kids who are normally unable to swim because of their condition can swim, kids that feel isolated because of their condition get to be around others who are going through the same thing.
The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp community provides this unique healing experience to kids in need and their families, including those who may not be able to come to Camp.
There are now Hole in Wall Gang Camps all over the world. With unobtrusive expert medical care, it was Paul’s dream that Camp would provide seriously ill children with a fun-filled experience defined by compassion, laughter and acceptance.
The best thing is… it works! Parents see a marked change in their child when they go home from camp, healing white blood cells increase ten fold and the best thing of all…a child who is seriously ill is taken out of their worry filled life and gets to experience pure joy for a week.
An amazing place and I’m honoured to be part of it.
I would be so grateful if you could help me raise money for this wonderful cause and sponsor me for the ride. Please see link below:-
