Go the Mo, Sam Jeffries IndyPac WCH

Sam and I (Becky) are hoping to raise heaps of money to buy bikes for the Adelaide Women's & Children's Hospital Rehabilitation Department. "Oh yes . . . why?"

Well let me explain . . .

Our funny, happy and beautiful 8 year old daughter, Hannah, had a terrible accident in 2016,  it's only thanks to the skill, dedication and kindness of the WCH neurologists, doctors, nurses, OT's, Physio's, Speech Therapists, Psychologists, Health Assistants and all other staff that we have her back, at home, smiling and healthy again.

Hannah was in PICU for 3 weeks in April 2016. The PICU doctors, neuro surgeons and nurses were incredibly dedicated and she received round the clock care.

When she woke from the coma she was unable to walk or talk, the injury had damaged her very badly and she needed to learn to walk, swallow, speak, and control her movements again. However, despite everything she remained (mostly) cheerful and positive.

Hannah spent months in the Rehabilitation Unit at the WCH, the kindness and support of the staff there is something that we can never repay. They have given us our lovely daughter back and we can never thank the WCH enough.

Hannah's dad, Sam, is an awesome cyclist and in March 2017 is racing from Freemantle to Sydney, non-stop and unsupported. He is taking part in the Indian Pacific Wheel Race, a crazy 'Cannon-ball Run' style race which careers across Australia during March and April. If he avoids rogue Aussie wildlife and survives living off meat pies for a month he should reach the Pacific Ocean after 5,500kms of pretty much non-stop riding.

We would love it if you could support his ride and help us donate funds to the WCH Rehabilitation team to buy bikes for children like Hannah.  After being in PICU Hannah was on a ward for a long time. When she was able to get on a bike as part of her rehab and go outside she felt like she was really getting better. After being stuck on a ward for so long to get outside in the fresh air and ride a bike was brilliant for her.

What we want is to help other children, like Hannah, have as much fun as she did whilst they're working so hard to recover from illness or injury.

The WCH would like to buy 2 bikes, one for younger children and one for older kids.

Something like this would be brilliant.

And this one, this one is cool.

They would also like a scooter and some safety accessories, helmets and training wheels.

If we can smash our (very optimistic) target the WCH would also like to buy a FES (Function Electrical Stimulation) bike.

This incredible bit of kit gets kids with paralysis moving again. As you can imagine it's pretty expensive but if we all chucked in $20 then it will only take 1,500 of us to buy one (as you can see they are VERY expensive).

Sam would like to thank Adelaide's Cycle Closet for their fantastic sponsorship for this ride, thanks to them Sam has a terrific POC helmet, glasses and Gore Apparel kit. Which look cool AF.

You can follow Sam's progress at  The Indian Pacific Wheel Race website  the race starts at 6am on 18th March 2017 #gothemo #indianpacificwheelrace
