My regular contributor to the Road Ramblings radio program with Smarter Riding, Paul Riley is very much community minded. Paul and his wife Dianne are currently off on a round Australia bike safari with twelve other riders, two pillions and four support crew.

The 30 day odyssey will see the participants travel 15,000 kilometres, visiting 83 towns and cities over 33 days.

The recipient of all funds raised is the Steven Walter Children’s Cancer Foundation.

The Steven Walter Children’s Cancer Foundation originated in 2001.

The origins of SWCCF lay in the wishes of Steven Walter, a young man who died in 2000 at the age of 19 after an 8 year fight against cancer.

In his final days Steven wrote a powerful letter to his family and friends asking them to raise money for childhood cancer research “so that one day no other kid would have to go through what I’ve been through”.

Big hearted Hyundai have come to the party and supplied back up vehicles.

Riders had to raise $5000 to join the ride and are actively seeking more sponsors. A target of $100000 has been set.

If you would like to sponsor Paul and Dianne or other riders, go to https://stevenwalterfoundation.org.au/ and follow the links.

Wonderful cause, well done Paul, Dianne and all the other participants.
