Mitch Lewis rides through Nova brekkie show
Nova 106.9’s Mitch Lewis has begun a unique training program for when he rides 100kms in 7 days for the Mater Foundation’s Cycle for Cancer.
He’s riding a stationary bike in the studio during the breakfast show!
Mitch is the sports reporter on Nova’s Ash, Luttsy & Susie O’Neill breakfast show, and is the proud ambassador for the Cycle for Cancer event, where participants cycle 100ks in 7 days from Monday, 5 September. The event is to raise money for improved care and support services, purchasing new vital equipment and life-changing cancer research.
Mitch wanted to get behind Cycle for Cancer as he knows how important the cause is.
“I really wanted to be involved with ‘Cycle for Cancer’ as my wife is a nurse at the Mater Hospital, so I know the incredible work health care staff do and how important it is to have the resources that they need to aid cancer patients,” he says.
“Plus, I’ve had family, friends and co-workers go through cancer – I can’t think of anybody that hasn’t been affected indirectly – and the Cycle for Cancer is such an easy way to do my part to help.
“By setting the bike in the studio obviously it will also help get my kilometres up but I’m hoping to serve as a personified daily reminder and get in the face of anyone in and around the office!”
Participants can take part however they like; hit the bike paths with family, grab a friend and cruise along the waterfront, or go solo at the gym and smash it out on a stationary bike.
Nova 106.9 is also a proud partner of the event. More info on how to support Mitch is here.
