The RPP FM Breakfast Table program will interview courageous cyclist Gerry McCusker who is putting his body to task to raise funds for The Fuller Center for Housing.
Gerry, 51 from Mornington is training hard conquering the Peninsula’s hills and dales including Arthurs Seat and Beleura Hill Road in preparation for the 5100km cycle across the US for the Cross USA Charity Bicycle Adventure.
The 35 day charity cycling experience, in aid to help fight homelessness will start in June from Atlantic City, NJ and finish in August in Astoria, OR.
The Fuller Center Bicycle Adventure invites individuals, church groups and businesses to break away from their daily routine and follow the Christian call to love and serve our neighbour. Gerry, who is the first Australian invited to ride with others from around the world in this challenge, will change the lives of those less fortunate by renovating and restoring their houses along the way including working on several Fuller Center projects.
Listen to Gerry on The Breakfast Table on Monday, 5 May at 7.45am to hear him speak about his motivation for being involved in The Fuller Centre for Housing and why the cause is important to him.
Follow Gerry’s journey on The Fuller Center Adventure facebook page.
If you wish to support Gerry on his ambitious journey and help reach his goal of $5,000 go to fullercenter.org/bikeadventure/meettheriders to donate.
We wish Gerry all the best on this life changing experience. It’s amazing what people achieve through generosity and goodwill.
