BALLARAT’S G.J. Gardner Homes presented cycling enthusiast Rob Gomm a cheque for $200 when he stopped in Ballarat on his 1800-kilometre journey to raise money for The Asthma Foundation of Victoria.
He is riding to Melbourne and back, with five G.J. Gardner Homes’ offices donating a total of $1000.
The money will be put towards the foundation’s education, resources and research programs.
G.J. Gardner Homes Victoria and Tasmania managing director Ross Morley said it was inspiring to see a young person dedicating such a substantial amount of time to supporting The Asthma Foundation.
“G.J. Gardner Homes was delighted to be involved in his fundraising endeavour,” Mr Morley said.
Mr Gomm began his ride on Christmas Eve and ended on January 10.
Asthma affects more than two million Australians and is one of the leading causes of hospitalisation for children and young people.
