Craig Jacotine is no stranger to Ride as One. Having
participated in the event three times over the past four years, he is back in 2018 to take
on the Adelaide Hills.
Following the birth of his son Jasper in early 2016, Craig rejoined
the Ride as One event in New Zealand, eager once more to enjoy the ride, the
scenery and the comradery.
Tragically, at just seven months of age, baby Jasper was
diagnosed with the rare childhood blood cancer known as Juvenile Myelomonocytic
Jasper was plunged into immediate gruelling treatment.
Craig and his family were devastated but more determined
than ever to raise much needed funds for families facing blood cancer.
With his added motivation, Craig once again rode in 2017
knowing on his return he would be spending weeks at Jasper’s hospital bedside
while he received a bone marrow transplant.
Thankfully, Jasper has responded well to treatment and the
transplant, and is now on the road to recovery.
Craig’s advice to those considering joining Ride as One
“Get on board, just do it! You won’t regret it.
“It’s a special experience for a great cause.”
Join Craig at the Ride as One Adelaide event in 2018 and
help beat blood cancer and support little Australians just like Jasper.
