Riding 1000km's to change lives

My Activity Tracking


My target 1000 kms

I'm fundraising for a great cause!

Here’s my bit:

During the month of September I’m doing the JDRF One Ride Cycling Challenge to raise funds for Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) research. I’m riding for my son Luka who has T1D.

My goal is to ride 1000km and raise $1000 to help Luka and everyone in Australia living with T1D. I'll be riding on the road (lockdown loops!) and on the indoor trainer. Please donate to help me achieve my goal: Luka and I greatly appreciate your support.


Here’s the copy:

This year is particularly significant for the T1D community as it marks 100 years since the discovery of insulin. Despite many advances in the past century, insulin remains the only treatment option for people living with type 1 diabetes. This means the needles, injections, finger pricks, bulky devices and constant monitoring remain a part of everyday life for anyone living with this condition.

JDRF is the largest funder of T1D research in the world and believes we shouldn't have to wait another 100 years for the next major breakthrough.

DONATE NOW to support me so we can help change the lives of more than 125,000 Australians living with T1D.

Let’s make type 1 diabetes a memory, not a milestone. Thank you!

Thank you to my Sponsors

Hey Jolyon, I did like your comment that someone suggested that you match $ to km! Considering you have nearly doubled your original target that is a lot more kms! Well done and it is awesome to be able to do something like this for your son.
