Reps for a Reason
Saturday 14 December 2013 - Black Mountain, ACT

Target Trek MTB rider, Brendan ‘Trekky’ Johnston, would like to raise awareness of testicular cancer, particularly in young men, and is keen to share his story with everyone. Brendan was initially diagnosed with testicular cancer, and through the diagnosis and treatment of his rhabdomyosarcoma he learnt a lot about testicular cancer, particularly that it affects young men. Brendan would like to express his thank to the Oncology Unit at the Canberra Hospital by raising money to support the critical work they do to save lives.
