We are excited and honoured to introduce the masterpiece that will form the centre piece of our cancer awareness campaign. Wiradjuri artist, Jodi Shannon, has created this artwork to help highlight the cancer disparities that exist for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. She dedicates this piece to her nephew Beau who died from brain cancer, aged 5. Jodi grew up in Condobolin and has lived on Darkinjung country for the last 15 years.
We are customising some precious fundraising items in Jodi’s design that will soon be available for purchase. We will proudly ride in Jodi’s cycling kit during our #everestingroam event in January.
We acknowledge the traditional owners of the land on which we cycle every day and celebrate culture as we walk alongside our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander friends.
