My Activity Tracking


My target 500 kms

I'm riding in Pedal the Map for my Dad, Ray Ashcroft, and to make a difference for people living with dementia!

Earlier this year my Dad was diagnosed with Lewy Body Dementia. Until this time in my life I had a perception of what Dementia was, actually as it turns out, I had no idea.

Probably the most famous 'victim' of this disease was Robin Williams. He died from suicide in 2014 at the end of an intense, confusing, and relatively swift persecution at the hand of this disease's symptoms and pathology.

Recently a documentary was released called Robins Wish. I encourage everyone to watch this as this gives an insight into what this frightening, overwhelming and devastating disease can do.

If I can raise some money and make a small difference, I will.

I appreciate any support that can be given.

This November I’m challenging myself to raise funds to support people with dementia.

My contribution will help complete a lap of the map!

Please help me reach my goal by making a donation. It only takes a minute and any amount you can give will go a long way to fund medical and social research and support the vital services, support groups and education programs that Dementia Australia provides to people living with dementia, their families and carers.
