My Story

This October, I am taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer!

Because right now, cancer is the largest single killer of children from disease in Australia – over 600 children are diagnosed with cancer every year and sadly, 3 die every week.

Kids should be living life, not fighting for it.

And so I am riding and raising funds to support the Children's Medical Research Institute to continue their work into the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and finding a cure for childhood cancer.

Please support my challenge by making a donation through my fundraising page to give these kids the brighter futures they deserve.

Together, we can save little lives.

Thanks for your support.

Octavio

  • A little slow, but finding some motivation in other GCC participants
    13 Aug 2022

    It is already August 15th and I’m trying to hit my first century ride. I shouldn’t be a surprise my legs have a different plan.

    When getting close to KM 50, after a quick call with my wife I figured out I was not going back home by my self. I started thinking and feeling a little down, am I going to be able to reach my goal? Am I strong enough?

    Thanks to the energy of the first rider I meet near Ancaster, and the others in Branford I’m thinking again. I’m not strong enough but I’m still going to try it.

    A little slow, but finding some motivation in other GCC participants
