Ride for Buttercup to the Sky

By Pieter van der Berg

I’m fundraising for Cancer Council Victoria to help stop breast cancer.

Seeing the pain and suffering that someone close to you have to go through after being diagnosed with breast cancer. Looking at their fight and motivation through the process. Having to mentally battle to get ready for every set of tests, hoping it is the last one and then having to hear there is more to come and the result is not what is hoped for. To their battle to get ready for each round of treatment. I would like to use this to honor my Buttercup through doing the ride to the sky. My ride is planned to be 126km, starting and ending at Fed Square ,her favourite place in Melbourne, with the halfway point being Sky High at Mount Dandenong. 


My Buttercup is the motivation for this day, her fight and positive attitude is the reason for me honoring her on the day before her last chemo treatment. I will post a Garmin Livetrack link on the  day for anyone to view my progress.

Cancer Council Victoria:

Every year more than 35,000 Victorians hear the words ‘you have cancer’.

Thanks in part to generous Victorians, 7 in 10 of them will survive five years after a cancer diagnosis, but there’s still so much work to be done.

Cancer Council needs our support more than ever this year. Every dollar raised gives hope for a cancer free future. By supporting my pink event, you’re funding life-saving cancer treatments, prevention programs, and support services that ensure no one has to face cancer alone.
