The FRIENDly Ride

Beames and Associates is a proud sponsor of the FRIENDly Ride, a 5000km mountain bike journey from Cooktown to Canberra being undertaken by former Brumbies coach Andy Friend. Andy is raising money and awareness for Brain Injury Australia and  The Outward Bound Foundation to run outdoor programs for participants with an Acquired Brain Injury.

This is a cause close to his heart after his wife Kerri suffered an acquired brain injury in May 2010 in a mountain bike accident. This has forced Andy and their two sons to face an adversity they never expected. Kerri will be Andy’s support crew for the ride which is expected to take 3 months.

I’ll be joining Andy for the last 3 days as part of a ‘Ride with Andy’ sponsorship that will include about 70km-80-km per day of riding. The serious training has started!
