Hello everyone, you may remember my post HERE about my surprise photo shoot? My lovely friends at Lorna Jane were super kind to let me wear their active gear for a photo shoot I was doing for Richard Branson.

I have signed up for something very amazing. Yes. It's truly amazing. I am riding with thousands of cyclists to conquer cancer once and for all.

Our sensational captain Klaus Bartosch along with other phenomenal cyclists are called THE VISION CRUSADERS. We are attempting something that has never been done before. We are all dreamers and I have been told I can't do this but you know what? I WILL DO THIS!!!! 200kms, 6 races nationwide (and New Zealand) and per person we need $2,500 per ride to enter the fundraiser. I will do Every. Single. Ride. The Grand Slam and need your support as I start my campaign.


Here they all are!!!!

So what's this cycling stuff really all about? Well here is a letter to the amazing man himself who inspired me as a young adult "Whatever business you are in, every company can shoot for the stars in their own way".


Sir Richard Branson will you come ride with us?


So here's me shooting for the highest star out there.....

Dear Sir Richard

My name is Daniela and I'm a fitness blogger based in Australia. My blog www.fitnessfoodandstyle.blogspot.com.au is only young and I've 80,000 people following me on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter & Pinterest. I love that my food and fitness challenges are inspiring others worldwide to make great changes in their lives, much like reading your Screw it, Let's Do it did for me 7 years ago. Thank you!

Currently I'm involved in a massively exciting campaign to fight cancer, a cause I have great passion for. I've joined with an amazing team of cyclists - all ordinary people, some cancer survivors - and we are riding to rid the world of Cancer. It's a big and bold goal but our team is determined to make a difference through completing all 6 of the Ride to Conquer Cancer events being held across Australia and in New Zealand this year.

Our team -  Vision Crusaders Grand Slam - will ride in all 6 of the RTCC events this year which will mean more than 1200km,  pedaling over 12 days through August to November. Each rider has to raise at least $15,000 plus cover their travel costs, and to date there are 27 riders wanting to ride in the Grand Slam team. There's expected to be total of around 12,000 cyclists participate across the 6 rides. Awesome, don't you think?

During your visit here in Australia, I'm hoping that you might help us do what could become your biggest achievement yet, helping to rid the world of cancer! Can you imagine how wonderful a world with out cancer would be!

Completing the RTCC Grand Slam is a massive challenge and we already have some Virgin brands supporting us, but knowing that you are personally contributing your interest would ensure that we actually pull it off. Primarily what I am asking is to have your encouragement but cheekily this is an invitation to have you join us for one or all of these rides as a member of our Vision Crusaders Grand Slam team. Are you keen?

I do hope that this is something you might consider and I look forward to hearing from you.

Much love and friendship from Australia,
Daniela Stevens

PS: for those wondering why I am doing this? I don't want to be a statistic. I have had family members die and thankfully others survived. I need you to help me so we can raise as much ridiculous funds to conquer cancer once and for all. For those reading this and know of any sponsors that would love to personally sponsor me, please email me with the subject title: CHARITY SPONSORSHIP. I will love you FOREVER!!!!  dani@fitnessfoodandstyle.com.au

  18. A BIG congratulations to Dani for having the determination and commitment to a cause she feels so strongly about! I am sending a wish on the winds to Sir Richard Branson that he reads this plea for his support and is moved to act. Your involvement and presence Sir Richard would give the fundraising efforts of ALL involved with the Ride to Conquer Cancer a much needed BOOST and you could potentially impact on many lives.

  20. Big audacious goals! Massive positive energy! Solving the problems of the world! Ambush marketing! Inspiring others! Improving everyone's health!

    Am I talking about Dani or Sir Richard Branson?

    Sir Richard, this invitation to you by Dani on behalf of the Vision Crusaders team (www.visioncrusaders.com) is big, bold and beautiful. Join us in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Adelaide or Auckland......or if you are up to it.......all 6 rides!

    have an epic impact. Help us end cancer by driving maximum attendance and interest in these Ride to Conquer Cancer rides across Australia, New Zealand and indeed Canada where they began 6 years ago. In total, over $300m has been raised by these rides to conquer cancer. What could possibly be more important than finding a cure that takes 1 in 3 people in the world from us?

  23. Sir Richard- Please accept our invitation and join us on our Ride to Conquer Cancer!

    As a cancer researcher (melanoma), I know first hand of the importance of the funds raised through this ride and the impact it can make. These funds go towards research that will progress our understanding of how cancer occurs, leading to the development of new treatment strategies that will increase patient survival. Everyone can make an impact to conquer cancer- will you join us and help us inspire others to know that we can make a difference?

  24. On the weekend, I celebrated 15,000 km on the bike that I bought because my oncologist prescribed exercise. My goal is to celebrate 20,000 km on this bike (known as The Lymphominator) during the Brisbane RTCC in August, which will be the 4th anniversary of being diagnosed with Lymphoma. Crazy, audacious, aiming high?? It's about making a difference by raising funds to support cancer research to help someone else.

    Sir Richard, please join us and share in these rides, to encourage more people to raise the bar and reach for the skies.
