Dentist’s Cycle for Cancer

As an avid cycler, Dr Mark Cull, lead dentist at Channon Lawrence Dental is switching his scrubs for lycra to take part in Suncorp’s ‘Spirit to Cure’ 2022 fundraising bike ride.

Over three adventurous days from the 11th-13th of September Dr Mark will be cycling 360 kilometers from Noosa to Brisbane (via Ipswich) with Team Gympie.

We are using virtual indoor trainers so all those in lockdown are on a group ‘Zwift’ ride. This is like zoom for cyclists, a virtual training platform where we organise meet ups and have a program to talk to each other.

They are coming up with cancer breakthroughs all the time but only through Australians being so generous.

I think Covid has reset people's thoughts. Everyone has gone back to basics. That's where people are realising life is short and doing their bit for the community.

There will be approximately 100 riders of all levels participating in the Spirit to Cure, divided into four groups. As an experienced cycler, Dr Mark will ride in a high-level squad and will be challenging himself to ride 140km’s a day.

Mark and Mary aim to raise $2,500 for the Gympie team. If you’d like to support vital cancer research projects and help change the lives of cancer patients and their families, you can donate here.
