Last Updated on October 18, 2016
Whittlesea BUG Member, Glenn, is currently participating in the Great Cycle Challenge to raise funds for the Children's Medical Research Institute to continue their work to develop treatments and find a cure for childhood cancer.

Because cancer is the largest killer of children in Australia - 3 kids die every week.  Cancer has taken too many young lives and robbed too many kids of their childhood. 

What is the challenge?

Glenn is riding 1,000 km during October to help fight kids' cancer!
