Main aim of the charity
Peter Mac is one of the world’s leading cancer research, education and treatment centres globally and is Australia’s only public hospital solely dedicated to caring for people affected by cancer. We have over 2,500 staff, including more than 580 laboratory and clinical researchers, all focused on providing better treatments, better care and potential cures for cancer.
How the employee got involved and why
I have lost quite a few young friends to cancer and feel very strongly about research to find a cure for this dreaded disease. I like cycling and what better way to raise funds whilst also keeping healthy.
What work does the employee do for charity?
I have been doing this 100 Kms. bicycle ride two years in a row and will be doing it for the third time this year.
What impact would winning have on the charity?
Will fund ground-breaking cancer research at Peter Mac.
What impact would winning have on the employee?
Will motivate me to keep doing this wonderful work and also to keep on riding.
