My Message

- Cycling 1000km around the Eyre Peninsula with Cycle4Sam -

I am riding in memory of and to bring meaning to my wonderful son’s life. Lawrence was a gentle, happy little boy with a big smile and a cheeky laugh. He was diagnosed with a rare, degenerative condition called Metachromatic Leukodystrophy at the age of 2 and was cared for by the amazing Paediatric Palliative Care Team at the Women’s and Children’s Hospital.

My connection with Cycle4Sam started in 2008 when Lawrence was being cared for by the WCH. I contacted the Roberts family and was inspired by the positive way they gathered the local community together with a shared vision, in memory of their son, Sam, to raise funds to support families in South Australia. I also enjoyed cycling and got involved in some of the C4S rides when I was able and found the camaraderie of the team and crew to be very supportive.

In November 2008, Lawrence passed away at the age of 3 years old. Since then I have participated in every C4S event. My family and I feel very much a part of this wonderful community event that is supporting South Australian families in so many ways.

Your donation will help build the WCHF Beach House at Encounter Bay that will allow families who have children with rare, life-limiting illnesses to have a holiday together, creating vital life-long memories. Currently there is no such facility in South Australia.

Please join me in supporting this great cause.
