'Elli's Ride for a Reason' Gran Fondo
"On June 3rd 2014, my wife went into labour with our first child. We were in total elation however within moments our world was turned upside down as doctors informed us that sadly there was no heartbeat. Elli - Our beautiful baby girl, was stillborn at 40 weeks. The support we received from SANDS Qld and hospital staff at this devastating time was incredible. Whilst it is our hope is that no parent ever go through what we experienced, sadly we know that it can happen again.
Join me and hundreds of other riders to ride and raise funds for SANDS Qld so that they can continue their support service for families like ours for many years to come.
Adam Mathieson - Event Founder
