Six Central Coast men came together recently for the inaugural ‘Ache and Brake to Wallis Lake’. The group of mates decided to cycle from their homes to team member Dom Lovatt’s holiday house in Forster and raise some funds for cancer research in the process. Each of the team has been affected in some way by cancer, and experienced loss of family & friends to this terrible illness.
Despite some pre-ride injuries the group were eager and enthusiastic to take on this challenge, and with a huge amount of support from family, friends and the local community they rode more than 230kms over 2 days taking them from Terrigal through Newcastle and Hawks Nest to their destination in Forster.
The ride was a fantastic success, even though none of the team has previously ridden over 200kms, and there are already talks of their next ride.
The Foundation would like to thank & congratulate the whole team – Brendan Marshall, Michael Chamings, Matthew Lenton, Dom Lovatt, Matt Maloney and Jason Williams – as well as their supporters for their generosity in raising more than $2,400 for cancer research!
