A well loved and respect young local man, Jayden Davies lost his battle with bone cancer aged 17 years early last year.
His father Lindsay wants to follow through his son’s legacy, inspired by his guts, determination and dignity and embark on the 2015 Ride To Conquer Cancer for a second year to raising funds for The Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre.
Last year Lindsay’s supporters raised $39,439 for cancer research and this year his goal is to reach the $50,000 mark.
Lindsay will be riding in Jayden’s team called ‘Hope is Stronger than Fate’ and needs your support to reach his goal.
There are some other events planned throughout the year including a Tour de France night on Saturday, 5 September with at least 100 keen touring and cyclist attending. We will watch the second last stage of Tour de France on a big screen and will be holding live and silent auctions of bikes, bike gear, AFL, horse racing and sporting memorabilia throughout the night.
Two great items secured is a framed and signed Cadel Evans Jersey and a Kubota Ride on Mower valued at $7,000.
One of Lindsay’s Initiatives is a $500 sponsorship which sees a company or organization recognized on our custom team riding jerseys to be worn over the two day event and also an invitation to promote their business on the night.
