From Canberra to Humpty Doo by bike – a Spine Tingling Ride to help others
In March of this year, Andrew Kerec will take on the punishing, self-titled and self-designed ‘Spine Tingling Ride’ – a 5,450 km solo journey across Australia by mountain bike to raise funds and awareness for SpinalCure and other life-changing not-for-profits and initiatives including Hartley Life Care and Livable Housing Australia.
The ride connects two places near and dear to the hearts of the Kerec family.
Starting at Andrew’s parent’s home in Forde, Canberra on Wednesday 15 March 2017 and ending at a cherished family friend’s home in Humpty Doo, Darwin six to seven weeks later in May 2017.
Incredibly, Andrew and the Spine Tingling Ride team have just crept over the seventy thousand dollar ($70,000) mark in their fundraising and have now set their sites on reaching $100,000 before the end of the ride.
Because Andrew and his family have secured in-cash and in-kind support for all logistical, admin, technology needs etc. – 100% of funds pledged are donated to SpinalCure and Hartley Life Care.
An amazing, inspiring, spine-tingling effort!!
