On the 8th June 2024 I will depart Lake Crackenback bound for Cairns by bike to raise funds for and awareness of everything we do here at The Fly Program.
My name is Kyle Bullock, I’ve been a long time supporter of The Fly Program and a member of the board since 2020.
I’m also a firm believer in putting your money where your mouth is, so I’m June 2024, I’m setting out on a 4000km+ solo journey by bike from the home of The Fly Program, to Cairns in Queensland in an effort to raise over $100,000 so that we can put 100 men through our community programs in an effort to break the cycle and change the face of Australian men’s mental health. This journey is a special one for me personally and one I almost never got to experience…
On Wednesday July 6, 2022 I broke my neck in a training accident at Jiu Jitsu. What followed was three days of not knowing if I could walk, surgeries to fuse my spine and over a year of rehab where thankfully I have been able to regain 95% of the function I had before my injury.
During this period of recovery I lost the ability to do many of the things I enjoy but one thing I was able to retain was my love of endurance cycling, a sport that I found when I was one of the darkest parts of my own mental health journey.
This mission is as much a personal journey and a commitment to myself that I am capable, but also intended to serve as a reminder to our community of what the mind and body are truly capable and I hope you’ll support us to achieve our fundraising goal to continue our efforts to change the face of Aussie men’s health.
If you’ve read this far and can donate, thank you. If a donation is beyond your means, thank you for reading this far and I hope my story serves as a reminder of what you are personally capable of.
