Testimonial - Graham and Nadine Belfield

Graham and Nadine Belfield

After losing our son, Cameron, to stillbirth in September 2011, the Sydney2CAMberra ride provided us with an event that we could organise in his memory and gave us something positive to focus on. Organising the ride to promote awareness of stillbirth

and death in early childhood, and to assist others by raising money for Red Nose and the Stillbirth Foundation who provide much needed support and research, has contributed significantly to helping us incorporate the loss of Cameron into our lives.

The Sydney2CAMberra Ride is not only a fun event with a very positive and supportive community atmosphere which raises money for two worthy charities. It also provides bereaved parents with the opportunity to do something in honor of their child, a tangible way in which they can be a parent to their child who is no longer with them. In addition to this, it gives bereaved parents, particularly Dads, an outlet with a sporting focus that allows them to talk with other bereaved parents about their experiences.

The support for the ride by all of the riders, volunteers, organising committee and sponsors to date has been overwhelming and we are looking forward to putting on another great ride in April 2017 to continue to raise awareness and funds to support families who have experienced the devastating loss of their child.

 

Thank you to everyone involved for helping Cameron’s memory live on in such a positive way.
