HELP CURE CHILDHOOD CANCER:

Ride For Lily 2022

April 2022

Travis Hester

This April I am joining the 2022 Ride For Lily: Bike to the Barossa. At just 9 years old my niece Lily passed away after enduring over a year of treatment for a rare liver cancer. Since 2016, my brother Aaron and the dedicated team at the Live for Lily Foundation have worked to ensure other families don’t have to experience a similar tragedy. I have watched this dedicated group raise over $1.2M, 100% volunteers, every dollar raised contributing to saving a child struggling to survive cancer. The Live for Lily Foundation help fund the Zero Childhood Cancer Project in addition to contributing to the Murdoch Children's Research Institute, which is part of the International Precision Child Health Partnership linking hospitals in Melbourne (Royal Children's Hospital), Toronto (Sick kids), Boston (Boston Children's) & London (Great Ormond Street Hospital) to pool their medical and genomic data to accelerate therapeutic outcomes. This year it’s time for me to dedicate the time, do the training, join the ride & see how many additional kids can be saved. Riding from Melbourne to the Barossa Valley in South Australia is a daunting task – 7 days, over 700 Miles & 17,500ft of elevation. I will be riding alongside 29 people who share my desire to finally see an end to childhood cancer. If you can contribute, please do so. Every donation, big or small is a step closer to a Zero Childhood Cancer future. Many families will be eternally grateful.
