John's Story:

As a father of 4 amazing children and 6 beautiful grandkids I was inspired by the achievements of the inaugural Feeding Dreams riders.

Their hard work and dedication put smiles on the faces and helped change the lives of all the kids involved. When Mick Berkley roped in our good mate John Viney I couldn’t help but be involved in the 2019 ride.

For the past 33 years my brothers, sister and I have run a chocolate factory in Melbourne. It has been a challenge but we always put smiles on our customers faces. Now I want to put a smile on the kids faces and challenge myself in a way I never have before.       

Please support me in my quest to succeed in this extremely important charity ride. Every cent raised goes to the school to provide not only education but food, basic medicine, life skills and so much more.

I look forward to seeing the fantastic results and to personally thanking you all.


Target: AUD$6,500
