GOOD CAUSE: Cootamundra’s David Moore is inviting people to sponsor him as he embarks on the Great Cycle Challenge. RIGHT now, cancer is the largest killer of children from disease in Australia.
There are countless stories across all forms of the media of young people with cancer and each story is just as devastating as the next.
Rather than hearing the stories and feeling bad for the families involved, Cootamundra’s David Moore has decided to take action.
He has joined the Great Cycle Challenge which raises funds for the Children’s Medical Research Institute.
The challenge allows riders across Australia to take on their own personal cycling challenge throughout the entire month of October.
David has set himself a goal of 1000 kilometres over the course of the month, which he is breaking up into small increments and getting a bit done each day.
“My daughter Kate has worked out it is only 33 kilometres per day so it is completely achievable!” David said.
“It will be tough but nothing compared to what these kids face every day of their lives as they battle this terrible disease,” he added.
When the opportunity to do something positive and proactive came up, David jumped at the chance to be involved.
“I have enjoyed good health and my kids have been fortunate enough to have good health; not everyone is so lucky so if I can put my good health to a good cause of course I’ll do it,” David said.
Thinking of his own two kids, Kate 21 and Brendan 17, David said seeing kids inhospital when they should be out and about enjoying themselves inspired him to take action.
“Kids should be living life, not fighting for it,” David said.
Over 600 Australian children are diagnosed with cancer every year and sadly, on average, three die every week.
