A KILMORE man is cycling 50 kilometres each day in April to raise money for the Royal Children’s Hospital Foundation.
Through being a member with Melbourne Fire Brigade and Fire Rescue Victoria for 19 years, Paul Chesher has a long-running connection with the Good Friday Appeal and the hospital.
Mr Chesher has always enjoyed bike riding and thought combining it with fundraising would help spread the word and encourage more people to donate to the hospital.
“I usually ride 20 kilometres a day, two to three times a week. But seeing the number 50 stands out, that’s here to the city every day that I’m riding,” he said.
“I’m doing the easy part though, spreading the word of the Royal Children’s Hospital and the wonderful work they do for the kids.
“I hope people see me riding my bike and want to get behind not just me and what I’m doing, but the kids.”
Mr Chesher plans on keeping his cycling close to Kilmore and surrounding towns, and encourages anyone who would like to join him to contact him via his Facebook page, Chesh’s 50kms for 30.
