Pedal power to find a cure
GYMPIE'S Randal Bishop graces the cover of this year's Gympie White and Yellow Pages, commencing distribution at the weekend.
Mr Bishop has been selected for the cover under the theme - Keeping Our Communities' Health.
In 2009, Randal's only daughter Shaynae died of a brain tumour at the age of 17.
Hoping to find a cure for the disease, that same year Randal embarked on a 1000-kilometre bike ride from Brisbane's Story Bridge to the Sydney Harbour Bridge to raise funds for brain cancer research.
Pedalling almost six hours a day, Randal raised $25,000 for the Cure for Life Foundation.
Encouraged by this success, Randal has since turned the ride into an annual event called the Bridge to Bridge Cycle Charity Ride.
Randal has just completed this year's Bridge to Bridge Cycle Charity Ride with amazing results and three of the riders who joined him have personal experience with brain tumours.
