My Activity Tracking
I'm riding 250 km to be a champion for children
Barnados changed our lives forever
Thousands of Australian children are living at risk of abuse and violence in their homes.
UK Barnados saved my brother as a baby and gave him a family. Our mother worked there, where she instantly fell in love with Roy whilst ‘courting’ our father. Dad proposed and they married as they became Roy’s parents, he was even their page boy on their wedding day!
Mum and Dad continued to support children through their local community, schools, playgroup and the church. I was also lucky enough to have them become my parents too at the ripe age of twelve….poor Roy didn’t expect a kid sister then, but with open arms I was accepted.
Like Roy and I, every child deserves a champion. Even one who wears lycra! We know how much Roy loved a superhero (could never decide between Batman or Superman)…however, he was my very Superhero!
That’s why I’m taking on The Champions Ride, so that Barnardos Australia can replace fear and danger with freedom and safety.
I’ll be putting my pedal to the metal and cycling during October, to raise money to help protect kids at risk.
Please support me by making a tax-deductible donation to Barnardos Australia. Together we can be champions for a safe childhood. Thank you for taking the time to read through and understand something that’s important to the Carter family, even if no longer with us xx

First ride today and it was great to be back in the saddleSaturday 2nd Oct Started with a 16km ride around home and the gardens, nice to see smiley faces, gets some fresh air all whilst trying to create a flower pot image via my gps tracking! I know, the things I try to stay creative whilst riding…check out my pictures, looks more like abstract art I’d say!
Less than 24 hours to go!Thursday 30th Sep It’s a cold rainy day, and tomorrow the 1st October looks to be the same. Even so, I’m going to get on my bike, get cold, get wet and remember who this is for.
