Lewis, a Cycle for Cancer fundraiser, is the sport reporter on Nova’s Ash, Luttsy & Susie O’Neill breakfast show and is married to Mater Private Hospital Brisbane nurse, Sarah.
Mitch trained on a stationary bike in studio during the live breakfast show, raising money to support improved treatments for people fighting cancer.
The Brisbane father-of-four is passionate about advocating for cancer research efforts-helping to lead this year’s $190,000+ fundraising effort.
“I’ve been reading the sports news while on the bike and I’ve been really puffed,” Mitch said. “I thought I better put in some practice before I did the 100km… I’m not much of a cyclist!”
Cycle for Cancer is a flexible virtual event that challenges participants to take on the ride of their life-to cycle 100ks in 7 days or choose their distance. Participants spin, sweat and clock up their “k’s” however they choose-at home, the gym or outdoors.
Sarah has both personal and professional experience with cancer. Her grandfather sadly died of lung cancer while her grandmother has successfully fought breast cancer.
“I worked in the oncology ward at Mater when I first started my career and I know first-hand how this disease affects families,” she said.
Thanks to Mitch Lewis for getting involved in this important cause.
