Southern Gazette (Belmont) - - NEWS -

LIFE Cy­cle for Can­Teen has raised al­most $1.7 mil­lion in the past two decades and is plan­ning a com­mem­o­ra­tive book to mark the 20-year an­niver­sary of the char­ity group. How­ever, the book, which is due out in Jan­uary, needs fundrais­ing of its own. Life Cy­cle for Can­Teen founder Jenny Aramini, of Carlisle, is hop­ing on­line crowd­fund­ing can raise $2000 to cover print­ing costs. The group’s vol­un­teers or­gan­ise a three-day ride from Bassendean to Bus­sel­ton and a three or four-day moun­tain bike event each year. The book will doc­u­ment heart-warm­ing and in­spir­ing sto­ries from the char­ity that sup­ports 12 to 25-year-olds liv­ing with can­cer. Ms Aramini was awarded an Or­der of Aus­tralia Medal for her ser­vices to youth and her char­ity work ear­lier this year and took part in the Queen’s Ba­ton Re­lay ahead of the Gold Coast Com­mon­wealth Games. South Met­ro­pol­i­tan MLC Kate Doust last week made the first do­na­tion of $200. To do­nate, search Life Cy­cle for Can­Teen at www. gofundme.com.
