ByK Kids Bikes and the Bicycle Centre Ballarat are super proud to have given a brand new ByK Kids Bike to a young Charlie in Ballarat today, on his 7th Birthday!
We came across Charlie from a photo of him holding a very brave sign on the Great Cycle Challenge facebook page.
The Great Cycle Challenge is the Children's Medical Research Institute's fundraising event to raise funds to help fight kids cancer. And anyone who loves riding a bike can get involved.
Charlie, a kid living with cancer himself, is proudly riding this October and we thought what better way we can congratulate him on such an effort, than by giving him the best kids bike he can possibly have to ride on.
Charlie, like an 7 year old, was overjoyed with the prospect of the new bike.
You can help Charlie raise much needed funds by sponsoring him on the Great Cycle Challenge website: https://greatcyclechallenge.com.au/Donate/Rider/34772
Even better, you can join up and clock up kilometres in October by joining Charlie's team - Charlie Power - https://greatcyclechallenge.com.au/Teams/CharliePower As described on the website:
"The Charlie Power team was created support Charlie's battle to beat childhood cancer and to encourage riders all across Australia to join together to fight kids' cancer!
Charlie Haggett kicked things off with a simple comment to his mum (Sharon), that he'd love to be the captain of a team...a team called 'Charlie Power'!
And so we've made it happen to celebrate Charlie's 7th birthday!
So please join the team and let's support this fantastic little man and ride together for ALL kids fighting this terrible disease.
ALL riders are welcome so spread the word and join Charlie Power to kick cancer's butt!
But remember, Charlie is the captain...so he's the boss. : )"
