Charity rider: Joshua Goyne
Hi, my name is Joshua Goyne; I’m 17 years old and live in Canberra.
I’m writing to you today to ask for your support to assist with fund raising and to promote stroke awareness. On the 26th of September 2015 I will be starting a ride of over 2000km from Westside Park, Acton in Canberra, to my late grandfather’s farm on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland. I founded the Barry’s Army Ride in honour of my late grandfather Grandad Barry; who, after suffering his 5th stroke was paralysed from the chest down requiring around the clock care and putting strain on our close family and friends. Sadly Barry passed away in 2014, shortly after his 6th stroke.
I founded the charity ‘Barry’s Army Stroke Support and Awareness’ to provide stroke ward’s with vital lifesaving equipment, help rehabilitate stroke victims and more importantly raise awareness of stroke.
Did you know?
This year I’ll be undertaking my third big stroke awareness ride, which will provide a sponsorship opportunity with major media coverage and a fundraising goal of over $30,000. This will be my hardest ride to date with this mammoth journey honouring my late grandfather Barry Graham and every other stroke victim and survivors.
In order to reach my fundraising goal, I would greatly appreciate if you would consider being part of the riding and support teams or would consider supporting my fundraiser. Any support through either donating money, providing accommodation, advertising/PR, holding a fundraiser or sponsoring equipment for either a raffle or the ride i.e. a bike, safety gear, riding jerseys, first aid kit, go pro to live stream the ride for my family and supporters to watch. Supporters & Sponsors can be advertised and promoted on riding kit, shirts, media pages, support vehicles and in interviews.
Any form of support would be greatly appreciated and most welcomed. Please don’t hesitate to contact me, looking forward to hearing from you soon.
