Everyone has been touched by cancer some time in their lives. Whether the diagnosis is a loved one, family member or its much, much more personal, cancer is a terrible burden.
On the weekend of October 26th and 27th, a group of seven will once again form Team Abbotts and cycle in the The MACA Cancer 200. Entering its 8th year and with a new name, the event is a two-day, 200-kilometre bike ride from Perth to Mandurah (and back again) to fight cancer and support medical research at the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research. The Perkins wishes to turn cancer from being a killer in to a manageable disease and every dollar we are able to raise could be the difference that a researcher needs to make the life-saving discovery that leads to a breakthrough that leads to a cure.
Unlike other rides, the MACA Cancer 200 is not a race. It’s an emotional, challenging, personal event where new people start as strangers and end as a family. All ages, sizes and fitness levels are welcome and everyone is considered a champion just for participating.
Team Abbotts will be riding for the memory of Paul Hodson and want to do our best to both honour his life and continue with Paul’s efforts in raising funds for research in to the management or a cure for cancer at the Harry Perkins Institute.
