BALLARAT mummy blogger and fitness guru Dani Stevens wants a high-profile companion to join her on a 1200-kilometre ride to raise money for cancer research. Ms Stevens has asked Virgin boss Sir Richard Branson to join the Vision Crusaders Grand Slam – a group of 27 riders who have either battled or been touched by cancer – if she can generate one million social media ‘likes’. The group will carry out six two-day rides through Australian and New Zealand capital cities in mid-August. “Sir Richard Branson is a visionary, a philanthropist and a larrikin so I hope he doesn’t mind that I’ve issued him with this challenge,” Ms Stevens said. If anyone is able to sell tickets to the film fundraiser for Ms Stevens, she can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org. Her bicycle and riding gear have been donated by Cycle City.
