Bike Across Australia –

In 2016 I had the honor of running 3,000 miles across the beautiful country of Australia (Perth to Bateman’s Bay just south of Sydney.) When I heard the news this January that many of the parts I had ran across were affected by the recent fires I instantly wanted to help. What’s the best way to help those who have suffered such a crisis; neighborhoods, communities, towns and cities? Support with action — Go Visit! I will bike 3,000 miles from Sydney back to Perth retracing my course in order to inspire and invest.

 

It’s been reported that over a billion animals will have died in Australia’s devastating bushfires and those who make it through the flames could die in the coming weeks.

Here’s how you can help: You can gracefully sponsor my ride (here) investing in putting fuel in my legs to motor my engine — and — please consider supporting the following organizations that are doing great works to help rebuild:

Fire Fight Australia
Fire Fight Fund is lending its support to the hundreds of rural, regional and remote communities across Australia that have been affected by bushfires this season.

Your donation to our Fire Fight Fund will ensure that the Foundation for Rural & Regional Renewal (FRRR) can provide support to assist these communities in their recovery when the time is right for them.

FRRR was established in 2000 specifically to support rural, regional and remote communities. Experience matters, and from our work over the last fourteen years supporting local communities in rural, regional and remote areas in their recovery from disasters, we know that the recovery will be a marathon; not a sprint. FRRR continues to support communities impacted by the Black Saturday fires in Victoria in 2009.

FRRR will be there to support communities on the long road ahead, providing funding for locally-identified needs throughout their recovery, even up to a decade later. Donate here: https://www.frrr.org.au/frrr-fire-fight-fund Follow on Instagram: firefightaustralia

 

Wildlife Information, Rescue and Education Service Inc.
Australia’s largest wildlife rescue organization, is accepting donations to fund the rescue and care of animals affected by the fires. In December, WIRES received more than 20,000 calls and volunteers attended more than 3,300 rescues. All animal rescuers are volunteers. Donate at www.wires.org.au Follow on Instagram: @wireswildliferescue

Koala Hospital Port Macquarie:
This koala hospital in New South Wales is accepting donations to fund the rescue, treatment and release of koalas, as well as research and education about koalas. Donate at www.koalahospital.org.au Follow on Instagram: @portmacquariekoalahospital

The Kangaroo Sanctuary:
Our mission is animals come first. We rescue, rehabilitate and release orphaned baby kangaroos back into the wild. Those who can’t be released into the wild are released into the wilds of our 188 acre Sanctuary. Donate at: www.kangaroosanctuary.com Follow on Instagram: @thekangaroosanctuary

Adelaide Koala Rescue:
Free 24/7 koala rescue service in South Australia. We are a professionally-run org based in Adelaide and predominantly cover the Adelaide Hills and all metro areas. Our koala rescue and rehabilitation team is highly experienced and includes veterinary and animal science professionals, ecologists, research scientists, natural resource managers, veterinary students and conservationists.
