Bob’s Fundraising update

May 27, 2020 | Blog Articles

Former Police Officer Bob Simpson chose to fundraise for Quest for Life by cycling from Perth to Bundanoon in 2019. He raised close to $40,000.

“It was an absolute honour to ride across Australia and Ride Against PTSD for the life-changing Quest for Life Foundation.

It was a joy to be able to raise some much-needed funds for this wonderful charity. The philosophies of Quest for Life are a basic recipe for peace in your life. It has changed my life.

I’ve been able to continue my relationship with Quest and their beautiful people since my Ride Against PTSD. The mental health of first responders who serve and suffer can improve and be managed through the gifts of kindness, gratefulness, mindfulness and meditation. The team at Quest can teach you this!

I’m a better person for being involved with Quest. I am more peaceful. I communicate better and I want for less. I am ready to serve again. Ready for life.”
