To those who attended the Mates on a Mission finale at Bull Creek Leeming Football Club on Saturday you witnessed one of the most special moments ever. Having travelled over 2700 km from Adelaide to Perth, Brad brought the Mission home in spectacular style. As a support crew we were overwhelmed with the size of the crowd who had formed a guard of honour to watch Brad with his mate Mitch, pedal across the line.
Brad, you may have been inspired by Crawf but you now are a source of inspiration for people of all ages. Like you, hopefully they will now have the courage to follow and fulfil their dreams. Mitch would have loved every minute of the road trip and would be really proud of what your combined efforts are about to achieve for the desperately poor in Seraya.
Brad, you are a champion in every respect. Enjoy resuming a 'normal' life and thanks for the privilege of being part of the ride of a lifetime.
