Hi my name is Lyn and I've created this page because I want to make a difference. I'm inspired by the work of Children's Hospital Foundation and wanted to support them by raising money as part of my participation in Bike 4 Burns 2017. Please help me help them by giving whatever you can using the 'Give Now' button. The more people that know about Children's Hospital Foundation, the greater their impact, so please also spread the word by sharing my page with your friends and family. Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!
In particular Bike 4 Burns is a charity bike ride that raises funds to further life-changing research into childhood burns, something very close to the hearts of firefighters and emergency services staff.
Because scars don’t stretch and grow with the skin, a child who has a burns injury can have to endure up to 50 operations before they reach adulthood. From 8 - 13 June 2017, a dedicated group of firefighters are volunteering their time to cycle 560kms to ensure that our amazing scientists can continue the search for the best treatment and scar prevention for kids with burns injuries.
A team of amazing cyclists are cycling from Townsville to Cairns over 560kms over 6 days.
I've joined a group of cyclists and we have formed a virtual team and we are going to each do our part to cycle a total 560kms together as a group. We'll do our kms in the surrounds of Brisbane while our colleagues travel from Townsville to Cairns.
