His determination to help cancer sufferers has led him surpass age barrier. Mal Hand will turn 75, at the time when he will take part in the 200km Ride to Conquer Cancer in August.
In order to take part in the ride, he has to raise $2500 and that too by the first week of August. Hand said that in order to raise the desired amount, he has been mowing gardens. He needs to mow 70 gardens to raise $2500, which he has to deposit by the first week of August.
Hand said that his father lost his life due to cancer, and since then, he wanted to do something constructive for others, so they do not have to lose their lives or near and dear ones.
The amount that will be raised in a two day cycling event will go directly to the Queensland Institute of Medical Research. PR Manager Brian Lowe said that research is going on to know probable causes of 13 different cancers, like skin, brain, colorectal and breast cancer.
The raised money will help the research to a great extent. "The ride is a complete journey from start to finish and the results stretch far beyond the event itself and the funds raised", said Lowe.
