A Perth nurse and keen cyclist will ride more than 4200kms to raise money for research into cystic fibrosis.
Thirty-three days, 4200km and two guys on their bikes doesn’t only add up to an epic adventure, but hope for thousands of Australian families.
Perth nurse and keen cyclist, Scott Nestorovic will ride more than 4000kms from Perth to Sydney to raise money for research into cystic fibrosis. Joined by his close friend Jason Morris, the pair have had the best motivation pushing them through the months of training for the Tomorrow Cycle for Cystic Fibrosis – Morris’s two-year-old son William has cystic fibrosis.
Nestorovic and Morris have a goal to raise at least $31,000 for researchers at the Australian Respiratory Early Surveillance Team for Cystic Fibrosis, based in Perth, and The Children’s Hospital at Westmead. The pair will ride the entire distance, with other cyclists joining them for parts of the journey.
“We will ride an average of 150kms a day which will mean riding between six and 12 hours every day,” Nestorovic said.
“We are not only raising funds for research, but raising awareness. Cystic fibrosis is something we often hear about, but don’t understand the impact it has on the individual and their families.
The ride will depart from Bathers Beach in Fremantle on March 19 at 6.30am. Make a donation at www.everydayhero.com.au/cycle_for_cystic_fibrosis nDo you have an idea for a story?
