Ol' School Garage team member Serge is riding his bike from Brisbane to Townsville later this month. No, not a motorbike! We are talking here about 1,800km on a pushbike over eight days. He won't be alone as he is one of 30 plus riders participating in the annual Smiling for Smiddy charity ride. All funds raised from the event go to The Mater Foundation for cancer research.
For those not in the know, Serge is married to my youngest daughter, Emma. In 2013, Emma was diagnosed with Stage 4 Melanoma. The only reason she is with us today is because she was lucky enough to gain access to a new drug under a clinical trial. So as you can imagine, Serge and I are very passionate in our support of research undertaken by The Mater Foundation.
