Cycling Cares, A Cure of MND

Raised by 9 people in 22 months
Hello All

My name is Rick Nieuwenhoven a small business owner in Adelaide, over the last couple of years I've been on a fitness journey and have lost 27 kilograms. I was also told not to run anymore due to bad arthritis in my knees. However seeing what people have to battle  with the disease MND, my arthritis means nothing. Therefore I'm looking to raise funds for  my brother in law who has been diagnosed with MND and has established a foundation known as Cycling Cares to raise awareness.

I want to do my bit so after a 25 year abscence I am going to do a traithlon on December 11.


Which will invlove a 20 KM bike ride and 3 KM run, to raise more awareness for MND, I'm willing to ride and run in the pictured suit, yes it may be annoying but nothing compared to what MND suffers go through. I'm hoping to raise funds to provide support to finding a cure for all MND sufferers as we all could be victim to this disease.

It means so much because I want to do my small part in helping raise awareness for MND in Australia, if all of us make a small ripple eventually that ripple will become a wave.

Any contribution will be appreciated by Cycling Cares, MND overall, If you have time I look forward to seeing you at West Lakes on December 11 if you want to say Gday to the blue suit or join me and run with me to help raise more awareness.

Sorry I forgot to take a photo. Recovered from gastro but feeling blah I pushed myself to go to the gym. 18 km in 30 minutes and 600 metre swim.
I could have quit but people with MND can't and don't quit, with no cure they fight hard. #iftheycanican #noexcuses

Please donate to the MND cause and support me in my triathlong challenge in the Blue suit.

So today is 48 hours after food poisoning. I was told to rest. However like MND there is no stoping I need to keep fit for December 11. So on the Gold Coast unwell I still did my 5 km run people with MND can't stop their fight so why should I?
It's a silent killer and it shouldn't be silent anymore
