Higgsy in NT raising funds for Prostate Cancer

Today the dream job that I have doesn’t seem quite so much fun anymore.  You have a photo of me and some of my mates outside the Daly Waters pub in NT where we were fundraising while on a motorbike ride.  The shot was taken in April last year. 

The two guys wearing Jackie Howe singlets and standing next to their bikes are (from left to right) Todd Barry and Simon Buckley.  Both were on the first leg of a round the world ride for prostate cancer as told on their website The Ride Right Round.

In Argentina on March 10th this year (2010) Simon’s bike blew out the back tyre and high-sided him.  He was killed instantly.  (More details are on the nine msn website.)

I would ask that you either take the photo down or better yet acknowledge that we have lost a great mate.

RIP Simon....
