Support the Riders


Support our riders at this year’s South West Bike Trek!

This year, we want to raise as much money as possible at our CLCRF South West Bike Trek, so we are getting behind all of our riders to help each of them smash their own fundraising goals! Below we have listed just some of the riders participating in this year’s event, as well as their reasons for supporting the cause, and how to help them fundraise.


I completed the Southwest Bike Trek in 2019 and had an amazing time with so many wonderful people, I knew I had to come back in 2020. I wanted to do this because a very dear friend of mine lost a grandchild to brain cancer. He was diagnosed at age 3 and passed away age 7. It was the saddest funeral I have ever been to and I wanted to do something to help future children so that they don’t have to go through this terrible disease.

I hope to raise as much money for CLCRF as I can. Please help me raise my tally.


2020 is my fifth year returning to ride in the Southwest Bike Trek. 2 years ago, I had open heart surgery, but I’ve realised that this shouldn’t stop us from doing the things that are most important. For me, supporting this event, which I believe is a really great cause, is a no brainer. Childhood cancer is extremely emotional for a lot of people and some very close to me. So, I’m riding for those people who can’t. I hope you can support me and help me raise my total this year.

Kids with cancer don’t have a choice, and we have a choice, to keep going rain hail or shine.


I’m excited to make this my first Southwest Bike Trek. I have heard so many good stories about how the event is run and the relationships we can build along the way. I’m looking forward to doing this with some of my friends this year because this cause is very close to my heart and I’m inspired by the work of the Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation. I want to throw lots of support behind them by raising as much money as I can.

Please can you help me and spread the word by sharing my page with your friends and family. Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!



I’m a first-year rider and very keen to get this challenge completed. I’ve participated in the dinners for the past 6 years through the local Lions club and have been inspired by all the stories that people share. I admire Geoff Cattach for his dedication to childhood cancer research and his 40 years of volunteering for CLCRF. I am riding for my sister who passed in 2014 and all of the children that suffer from this terrible disease.

More funding means more research, which means better outcomes for children. Please consider supporting me to help those children.



This is my first year riding for the Children’s Leukaemia and Cancer Research Foundation. I’ve never done a continuous ride before so I’m a little nervous. I’m lucky to be doing this with two of my wonderful friends who will support me every day because this cause is close to my heart. My Mum passed from Leukaemia recently and I believe that by raising funds for childhood cancer research, I can hopefully contribute to preventing children and people like my Mum passing from this awful disease.

Will you help me raise as much money as we can? Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!



This should be my second year riding in the Southwest Bike Trek except that last year, two weeks before the ride, I broke my arm so was unable to participate. I have been training for a full year to make sure that I will be ready this year and I can’t wait. My sister passed away a few years ago from Leukaemia and it affected me greatly, so I wanted to do something to help children who battle this terrible disease. They inspire me every day when I ride my 30 – 40 kms to train.

Please help me raise lots of money for research as it’s the only way we can get rid of this dreadful disease. Thankyou in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!


Julie & Peter

Cycling is our way of keeping our friendships alive, it’s what brings us together. Peter and I recently celebrated our 43rd wedding anniversary and we enjoy riding together with friends that love the adventure. We did this event last year and had a ball, it was so relaxed, and we made some great friendships along the way. We know people who have battled through childhood cancer and we want to do everything in our power to help fundraise for research – that’s why we chose the Southwest Bike Trek.

The important work that Children’s Leukaemia and Cancer Research Foundation does is why we need to raise as much money as possible this year. Please consider supporting our efforts so that children who need the help can get it.



I have been participating in the CLCRF South West Bike Trek for about 8 years now, as many times as event co-coordinator Eric. I simply love the ride and look forward to it every year – It’s always an enjoyable experience with such great people, for an incredibly important cause.
I want to make a difference and help raise funds for childhood cancer research. Please help me raise money this year and help ensure more children can go on to live the lives they deserve.




I have competed in the CLCRF South West Bike Trek a couple times before and I think it is an incredible event. It’s so great that we get to come together as a community and support such a worthy cause. Please help me spread the word and raise money for childhood cancer research by making a donation towards my fundraising page.

Thank you in advance for your support and encouragement!


This year will be my 14th time participating in the CLCRF South West Bike Trek. I’m always happy to help such a wonderful and important cause. As an added bonus, it’s also a great cycling experience where we get to explore the beautiful South West region.
Please help me help me raise money for childhood cancer research by giving whatever you can! The more people that know about Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation (Inc) , the greater their impact.
