Steve, MD of Starboard IT and Jimmy, PM for Axiom are setting off on a great adventure, riding their postie bikes around Australia in May to raise money for Kookaburra Kids.
Funds raised will go towards the Kookaburra Kids Program, helping children living in families affected by mental illness. The programs provide children the opportunity to attend recreational camps offering a very important psycho-educational component, as well as a series of activity days, giving kids a break in a fun, positive and safe environment. Kids meet other kids in similar circumstances, share their experiences and learn coping skills and resilience. The long term impact is a child who is more resilient, has hope for the future and can strive to meet their potential and make a positive contribution to the community.
Steve and Jimmy will be attempting to circumnavigate Australia (15,000km) sticking to the M1 and A1 roads on their postie bikes in just 15 days. Going through extreme terrain and diverse climates ranging from dusty deserts to humid tropics to Tasman rainforests on bikes that have a top speed of 80-85km/hr, it will be a long, tough journey both mentally and physically.
