Our Pedal Through Perthes charity event on 11th Nov was so much fun! More people than we expected came out to join us cycle, scooter, skateboard, run or walk the 3km round trip. The weather was perfect and 250 of us met at RCHK’s basketball courts just before 2pm. Sailability Saturday Sailors came and walked the whole way. I was so happy to see them all there.
A lot of my friends came on their bikes and so many teachers. My mum and dad were really happy.
Mum had arranged a lot of her students to come and help be marshals on the route, first aid and photographers. They were brilliant! Lots of photos were taken I can’t wait to see them all.
Rachele made a huge Instagram frame – everyone loved it and wanted to take their photo in it.
All our raffle tickets sold out and all but one T shirt sold out. The hot dogs were great and I think I had two!
Loads of people tried my handcycle and the green handcycle that Mike made. Everyone donated to give them a try.
$22,500 was raised on the day, including the T shirt sales, so we were really happy about this!
My dad paid the money in straight away and it’s in the Just Giving already. So far, we have raised $46,000 in total.
I really loved Saturday, and I hope we can do something like this again. Thank you to everyone who came and to those who donated if you couldn’t come.
