Lucie Leonard was 34 when she lost her seven-year battle with brain cancer in 2012. Her mother, Robyn Leonard, quickly became a passionate brain cancer consumer advocate. Robyn recognised that a lack of tissue samples was hampering research and established Brain Cancer Biobanking Australia (BCBA), enabling a collaborative approach to providing researchers with access to the resources they need to make real breakthroughs in brain cancer research.
The Bike Ride for Brain Cancer is the major annual fundraising event for BCBA. A truly special and boutique event that sees Lucie’s family and friends joined by many others touched by this devastating disease, as well as those who just want to make a difference.
