My Ride to Conquer Cancer

Beate Ruuck of Mad Hat MediaRide to Conquer Cancer 2013 - Mad Hat MediaG’day and Guten Tag!

My name is Beate [beˈaːtə] and I am the owner of Mad Hat Media.

I have decided to challenge myself and join the 2-days ride to conquer cancer.

I’ve joined the team Meetup Perth Friends and we are committed to fundraising and having a wonderful two days of riding.

Why am I doing this? I moved from Germany to Australia three years ago and fell in love with Perth, the great Australian outdoors but most of all: the people. I’ve always felt welcome and accepted and now it’s time to give something back!

I am supporting the Ride to Conquer Cancer as the owner of Mad Hat Media, my boutique online marketing agency in Fremantle, to raise at least $2.500 to donate to cancer research and participate in the ride.

My family and my in-laws have been affected by skin cancer, bowel cancer and pancreatic cancer and I want to support the Western Australian Institute for Medical Research (WAIMR) with their work.

The furthest I’ve ever ridden on my bike was 60km in one day and riding 200km over two days is a big challenge for me.

The ride will take me through the countryside of Western Australia, along the Darling Ranges to Mandurah and back – but I can only ride if I reach my donation goal of $2.500!

I will keep you updated with my training progress and fundraising goal using different online channels:

Please support my ride with your generous donation!


Thank you very much and Dankeschön!
