Eyes Open Ride

Earlier this year, James John embarked on a 19,000km journey around Australia, by motorbike, in aid of children with cancer.

James set an ambitious target for his 'Eyes Open Ride' – to raise $50,000 for the Children's Cancer Foundation.

At the completion of his epic ride, James had raised $57,000 to go towards funding cancer research into new and kinder treatments for children.

Plus, every dollar donated to the Foundation was doubled as James made a personal donation of $50,000 distributed to 10 different hospitals with cancer wards along the journey to help provide toys and much needed equipment.

"What I really hope to do is encourage dialogue between people about the needs of others all across Australia, particularly ill children, and to give people the opportunity to donate and support others," said James.
