Samuel Johnson’s sister Connie is dying of Breast Cancer, so he set out on an epic challenge RiDiNG AROUND AUSTRALiA ON A UNiCYCLE!.. It’s all about keeping the promise he made to Connie:

  • Raise a million dollars for Breast Cancer research
  • Raise awareness of the disease that’s killing her
  • Break the Guinness World Record for the longest journey on a unicycle 

Sam’s Video Postcard to his sister Connie: from Derby to Broome, WA (YouTube video)…

Before he left on Friday 15th February, Samuel did some training, ditched the beers, and froze some of his sperm (under advice of doctors, in case the long journey on a unicycle had an effect on his closest mates). Connie is asking Australia to come up with some tough sponsored challenges for her brother Samuel. His epic challenge is all about being breast aware and educating Australia on the importance of early detection. Their message is simple: ‘Don’t fall into the booby-trap, be breast aware!’ ~ www.LoveYourSister.org
