Community Recognition - Great Cycle Challenge

7th February, 2024.

Marjo Hallowell and her grandsons—Edward, aged 10; Douglas, aged eight; and Hugh, aged six—together as team Awesome Kids4Kids, raised $13,153 in the Great Cycle Challenge 2023 placing fifteenth of 760 teams in Australia, and an impressive second in the Family Teams category. The funds raised go towards the valuable work of the Children's Medical Research Institute in finding a cure for childhood cancers. Individually, the boys' hard work is recognised in their placing in their age groups, with Edward coming third; Douglas, fifth; and Hugh, sixth. Marjo and her grandsons have already started their impressive fundraising efforts for this year's challenge. They are on track to achieving their goal of raising $50,000 through Return and Earn bottle collecting, and have only 40,566 bottles to go. Thanks to the efforts, kindness, legs and lungs of bike riders like Wollondilly's Hugh, Douglas, Eddie and Marjo, the institute's vision of a world without cancer where all kids are living life, not fighting for it, is a little bit more of a reality today. I wish them the best of luck .
