Next month, Krikke Motorsport team manager Ryan Krikke is excited to announce that he will be completing a charity bicycle ride in order to raise money for cancer research at the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research via the Krikke Boys Shootout Ride to Conquer Cancer.
Having been significantly affected by cancer in the past, with team owner and brother Shane Krikke having lost his 18-year battle with the disease in June of 2016, team manager Ryan Krikke and the rest of the Krikke Motorsport team were more than happy to throw their support behind the cause, after being approached by 360 Sprintcar racer and Ride To Conquer Cancer advocate Paul Peet.
The Krikke Boys Shootout Ride To Conquer Cancer is set to be held on the Friday of March 2, the day prior to the annual two-night Krikke Boys Shootout for Sprintcars at Bunbury Speedway, and will see participants ride 200 kilometres from Perth to Bunbury in a single day.
“We’re privileged to be involved in the Krikke Boys Shootout Ride To Conquer Cancer charity bike ride and we’re keen to get the speedway community involved in this brilliant cause,” commented Ryan Krikke.
“Cancer is something that either has, or will touch all of us in one way or another and the more awareness and funds we can raise to help with finding a cure the better. I have personally lost family members, work colleagues and friends to this terrible disease and one of my best friends is currently battling with.
“It’s going to be a long day in the saddle, probably seven to eight hours, but that is nothing compared to what a cancer patient has to deal with. The motivation to keep going will be easy to find.
“Finding a cure for this terrible disease isn’t possible without the support of generous people and we’re hoping that the speedway community will get behind us and donate whatever they can. No amount is too small.”
A number of developments are also underway to incorporate the Krikke Boys Ride into the Shootout at Bunbury Speedway throughout the weekend, giving fans and competitors a chance to show their support.
100% of the donated funds will go directly to the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research. To show your support and contribute to cancer research, you can donate by clicking on the following link: http://bit.ly/2nmJdJY
