Sixty-six year old Paul Lamb says a plant-based whole food diet supplies all the nutrients he needs for energy, vitality and long-term health, and he's cycling 4000km in 25 days to prove it.

Every dollar of the donation you make to the charity of your choice above goes directly to them and you receive a tax receipt. All expenses for the trip, including hire of the van, fuel, food, internet, extra video, camera and data equipment we've needed to document the trip have been expensive and have come out of our own pockets directly. This will build as the trip goes forward. If you would like to help Paul and Michele make it to Darwin, any donation would be greatfully received. You can go to NATIONAL AUSTRALIA BANK (NAB) BSB: 083 543, ACCT: 11 595 8745. We will try everything we can to get the message out there and do everything in out power to educate as many people as possible. We are after a big result, and we could not do it without the support of people like you who want to see a change for the better. THANK YOU.

mndPaul Lamb has been eating a Wholefoods, Plant based diet for the past 30 years to improve his health and is planning to ride his bicycle from Melbourne to Darwin through the desert in April this year (2014)! (4000km in 25 days, an average of 160 km/day) to demonstrate his physical ability.

OrangutanMichele Huthnance is the Photographer, IT and admin person charity organiser and website developer. She will amongst other things be the support girl who will drive the vehicle, prepare meals, take photos, video the ride from the van, edit van and helmet video, update Facebook page, update website and set up interviews while generally looking gorgeous in an effort to raise money and awareness for: The Motor Neurone Disease Association and The Orangutan Project. I think Paul has got the easy job!

usWe are promoting the link between the food we eat (consumption of animal protein and processed foods) and diseases such as Diabetes, Heart Disease, Auto Immune Diseases and Cancer. 

Now, I’m happy for him to do the riding, but it’s still risky for me too.  I could be eaten by a crocodile or bunyip while parking my luxury van under a tree, and it’s very difficult to run in a frock with hard yakka boots …so I’ll have to keep my wits about me.

You can help by donating to one of these charities or by promoting the ride in any way you can. Anything that is donated can get the ball rolling and would be very well received. You also receive a tax deductible receipt with every donation via email.
