Tiny Sparks at Telethon 2017

We were excited to be given a unique opportunity to participate in the Peard Real Estate cycle challenge at Telethon this year alongside organisers Matt Fuller, Josh Catalano and Soa Pallelei who were riding for 24 hours, what a super human effort!

Russell donned his Tiny Sparks t-shirt and put in a awesome effort on the spin bike riding from 10pm until midnight.  Visitors to the cycle challenge during this time included The Premier Mark McGowan, Hon Julie Bishop MP, David Koch, Natalie Barr, Samantha Armytage and many, many others.

The atmosphere at the cycle challenge was electric.  The DJ did a wonderful job keeping the music upbeat and the crowd of onlookers entertained.

The cycle challenge raised over $150,000 for Telethon helping them to reach an all time record of $36,431,381.  Well done Western Australia, your generosity is truly inspirational!

Making it look easy!

This was our very first time at Telethon and it was fantastic!  We hope to be back in a larger capacity in 2018.

In the zone.
