Steve Mater

Steve Mater.jpg

As you know i do all I can to support my best mate Julian, and his son James who suffers from Duchenne muscular dystrophy. I have ridden a bike literally via the coast from Airlie Beach to Adelaide. I ride because James will never be able to. I ride because Julian  and Sharyn’s life has been made so difficult by Duchenne yet they have never stopped trying to make a difference. We have raised over $3 million for research and care for Duchenne, but it’s not nearly enough. 

In April I am riding again. 1000km’s around Tasmania in 8 days. 

Honestly, I hate riding, but I love James and Julian. Please help me reach my $15,000+ commitment to the Fight Duchenne Foundation so they can build James House - a respite oasis on the Gold Coast for the Duchenne community to enjoy.
