OUR CEO IS NOW RIDING ACROSS AUSTRALIA

In his own words, and under his own admission, Andrew says, “I am not a top athlete, that’s for sure. That’s pretty obvious. But this ride across our big beautiful country is not about being a top performer. I simply see it as a wonderful opportunity to raise awareness about what the FOUNDATION does on a daily basis, and that is to provide much needed funds to individuals living in stressful situations, and to charities who are on the frontlines day in and day out serving in the community.”

He continues, “I’ve been looking forward to the ride for quite some time and am grateful to our generous sponsors who will be supporting this journey. I think exercising is crucial, not only for physical fitness, but is equally important for a person’s mental health and well-being. This is something that I'm continuing to learn about as I get older. I’m really excited, as mental health is a primary area in which the FOUNDATION provides benevolent relief in.”

In closing Andrew states, “Having driven across Australia multiple times in the past, I know the landscape is really raw and isolated. There is no doubt in my mind that there will be countless challenges, but thankfully my support team will be there every step of the way. I anticipate incredibly sore legs by the time I reach the other side of the country, but I figure it’s a very small price to pay if the ride can help the WHITE SHADOW FOUNDATION in its philanthropy. I'm up for the challenge in 2024 - bring it on!”
