For his sixth consecutive year, Mr Manix, who is living with MS, aims to raise more than $20,000 with his team called “Manlec” by cycling in the 100km ride.
Describing the ride as “a short struggle for a potential long-term solution,” Mr Manix said he participated each year so that there could be funds raised and put towards supporting Queenslanders like him, who are living with MS.
“As a community, we don’t want people living with MS to feel like they have no support or options due to lack of funds, and therefore I want to support MS Queensland to ensure they have enough funding to do so,” Mr Manix said.
“Even though I’m not an ardent cyclist, I know that the Brissie to the Bay Ride is such a great cause and I love the concept of friends and family coming together as a community.”
Marking its 29th year in 2019, MS Queensland Executive General Manager Fundraiser Daniel Lalor said the event was one of the organisation’s largest and most important fundraisers of the year.
Great job Scott good luck with your ride.
