Why I ride for Camp Quality

“To me 1,000 Ks 4 Kids means laughter. 10 days of sharing stories with new and old friends, but most importantly, raising funds for Camp Quality, to help out kids who face the hardships of cancer. The ride also means a challenge for myself, and I love helping others achieve the milestone. It makes me proud to see new riders, and old riders, achieve the challenge, especially when they did not believe they could do it.

2016 was my fourth year on the ride, with my first one being Ipswich to Newcastle, and every year I take something different away from it. It is such an awesome, inspiring event. I have enjoyed every minute, of every ride, so much so I already look forward to completing the next event, and meeting more amazing friends for life”.
