Marc Simone, awesome dad , concerned citizen & cyclist

Postby Coolabah » Tue Feb 19, 2013 5:41 pm

I was very very sad to hear that this person , whom I do not know , was tragically killed last weekend whilst training in his endeavour to raise money for a 4,000 km charity ride to Darwin. I would just like to re post the link to his charity raising page, please at least consider donating even $1 ....so that he didn't die "totally" in vain ( of course his and any death by any definition would always be in vain ) . If you cycle on the road , this could have been "you " ( heaven forbid of course )... The original thread has been closed for the usual reasons, I hope it is acceptable to post this to raise awareness of the REASON this fellow was "IN THAT PLACE , AT THAT TIME - IT WAS "FOR OTHERS " so this hits a chord for me in so many ways.....

If I were to be collected in a MVA , I would smile down from heaven ( err.. or up from...?? ) to those who kept my legacy alive...

here is the link..

Heartening to see that donations have gone from approx $1,500 to over $35,000 in the space of 4 days - and climbing.

I believe they are still going to complete the ride using different riders in a relay style. Hope this can go ahead.

update :
$71,377.00 AUD as of today. I really don't understand why it is so important to me that the target is reached ? But my gut tells me it is ,I think it is a Karma thing so forgive the "bump"
