Day 0 : Purple and Pink Ride – The Day Before

This morning, I took a quick trip, out to Sydney Olympic Park, to pay a visit to Spotless Stadium. The home of the Sydney Thunder and the GWS Giants. It is also the starting point of my Purple and Pink Ride. This a bicycle ride, from Sydney to Melbourne, to raise funds and awareness for Epilepsy Australia and the McGrath Foundation. I intend to take two weeks, arriving at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) on the 30th of September – the day before the AFL Grand Final. For the overview of the ride, I wrote an earlier post about it.

While I was visiting the stadium, I shot a video.

This is the first long distance bicycle ride that I’ve done. I’m quite excited about it, and looking forward to the challenge! But, above all, I’m hoping that I can generate a little money for these two charities. Please consider giving. And, if you’re an Aussie taxpayer, donations of $2, and over, are tax deductible.

Proudly supporting Fight MND

A Thousand Miles proudly supports Fight MND. MND stands for Motor Neurone Disease. It is also known as ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis), or Lou Gehrig’s Disease.

It is a progressive disease which attacks the motor neurones, or nerves, in the brain and spinal chord. This ultimately leads to signals not reaching your muscles (which will eventually waste away). It can affect how you walk, talk, eat, drink, breathe, and so on. It is a silent killer. THERE IS NO CURE.
