WILL AND KALE’S BIG RIDE
Will Ashley and Kale Teece are two teenagers with big hearts trying to make a difference.
On the 24th of June, the Year 10 students from Bishop Druitt College will set off from Coffs Harbour on a cycling journey all the way to Sydney. Why are they doing it? The families of both boys have been touched by cancer. Will’s mum had breast cancer when she was young, and Kale’s grandparents both had cancer. They’re cycling south with the aim of raising $10,000 for the Australian Cancer Research Foundation.
Over the past 8 weeks the boys have been hard it raising money at local markets. They’ve had their bikes on rollers riding five hours a day and the hard work. Thanks to a steady flow of gold coins, the boys are well on their way to the $10,000 mark.
The actual trip will take 6 days, with the boys cycling an average of 100 kilometres a day. They’ve organised free accommodation at YHA hostels on the way.
Will and Kale’s parents have taken time off work to provide support on the road.
