Challenging stock agent Grant Elwin to raise funds for mental health

By Lyndsey Douglas

One of Ray White Rural and Livestock’s leaders, Dale Keatley (Mt Gambier, SA), has publicly shared his story of an experience with depression. His story has been viewed by tens of thousands online and major newspapers have written about it too. His business Ray White Keatley are hosting a major charity function “Mellow in the Yellow” with Kate Ceberano in February to raise funds for the rural mental health cause.

To show our support, we have challenged another Ray White Livestock agent Grant Elwin (Cowra, NSW) who has decided to take himself on a gruelling cycling race over 235kms long and 4000metres of ascent to help increase donations. It’s called the Peaks Challenge Falls Creek and the ride has a cut off time of 13 hours. We’re challenging Grant to do it in 10.5hrs. We’re looking for 10 offices to sponsor Grant to shave increments of 15 minutes (down to 10.5hours) for a minimum donation of $250 each.

We need a sponsor for each of the following times to complete:

12hrs 45mins: Lyndsey Douglas
12hrs 30mins
12hrs 15mins
12hrs 00mins: Ray White Griffith
11hrs 45mins
11hrs 30mins: Ray White Rural and Livestock Lavington
11hrs 15mins
11hrs 00mins: Ray White Rural and Livestock Emms Mooney
10hrs 45mins: Ray White Rural Cowra
10hrs 30mins: Brand Territory

To register your office to buy one of these time slots, write your office name below (on social media) or shoot an email to semms@raywhite.com.

Donations to be directed to:
CBA – Mount Gambier

Update 12 March 2018 – race day!

Grant Elwin complete the Peaks Challenge in gruelling conditions with temperatures hitting 37 degrees. The dehydration and cramping caused by the mountainous journey resulted in many competitors pulling over to stop, walk or worse. Ambulances and drips were plentiful and Grant described the ride as “brutal”.

“There is around 4300 metres of climbing,” he reported, saying that even 3 days after the race he still felt like he had golf balls in the back of his legs.

He was proud to complete the challenge, which is considered the hardest ride in Australia for ‘weekend warriors’ or non-professionals.

Our congratulations to Grant and thank you to the offices and individuals who are making donations to Mount Gambier’s Mellow in the Yellow charity.
