The Ride to Conquer Cancer Brisbane 2013

Over the weekend my brother Lachlan and 1235 passionate riders took up the challenge to ride over 200kms over two days in the fight to Conquer Cancer. They set off  early Saturday morning riding from UQ at St Lucia to Wivenhoe Dam, stayed the night there and then rode back to UQ on Sunday morning. Their  early start Sunday morning was delayed by heavy fog but that didn't seem to dampen the spirits of any of the riders.
This was Lachlan's 3rd year fundraising for The Ride to Conquer Cancer

I would like to Thank the following people and companies who sponsored Lachlan, on behalf of our sister Megan and our family. Your generosity helped Lachlan raise $5480.00 for QIMR
Brad and Shona Tully
Tracey Newman
Leanne McAlpine
McAlpine Family Trust
Lyn and Trevor Kidd
Bill Krause
Fricke Family

We are so thankful for your support and you have all contributed to the 4.2 million dollars raised which goes towards cancer research at the QIMR

Here are some photos of Lachlan from the weekend.
