'Ride for Josh 2019' Charity Ride from Melbourne to Canberra
I'd love to introduce myself, I'm Samantha Bradbury - the founder of By Samantha Melbourne!
I've created this ride to firstly honour the memory of my brother Joshua Bradbury who passed away in 1991 from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (aka SIDS)
Secondly, this project to raise funds and awareness of SIDS for families that may not have heard of this syndrome.
I have struggled for many years to deal with the grief and loss.
Feeling exhausted from what feels like never-ending grieving, this year I've decided to do something positive that challenges my grief and changes it into hope for others .
This project is two fold:
1) A fundraising goal of $10k for education for mothers, grief & loss services for families and research into SIDS for Red Nose foundation.
2) A 700km road bicycle ride from Melbourne to Canberra on June 28th > July 5th.
Yes you read correctly, Melbourne- Victoria to Canberra -ACT... on a bike!
So join me on my adventure of firstly training, fundraising and then undertaking the ride.
Much love, Samantha
