I'm fundraising for a great cause!

Lifeline is Australia’s largest suicide prevention service, with a vision of an Australia free of suicide. The Lifeline network spans the nation with 41 centres in metropolitan, rural and remote areas.  There are over 10,000 volunteers and 1,000 employees working to ensure that no person in Australia has to face their darkest moments alone.

Lifeline aims to deliver digital services to Australian people in crisis, wherever they might be and in the mode in which they are most comfortable accessing support. Each year, Lifeline receives almost 1 million contacts from people in crisis. 

By participating in the Hope Cycle, Tour of Australia on FulGaz, I'm raising much needed funds for Lifeline, can you help?

My Updates

3 stages to go!!

Tuesday 6th Sep
Coming to the end of the Hope Cycle! With only three stages to go. Completed 2 stages last night, must admit a bit of challenging after being out all day and having 450 starts this week at work. Nonetheless was fun to get over two hours of exercise in last night : ) 

2 weeks in | 6 stages to go : )

Saturday 3rd Sep
Amazing to have fundraised money from so many people thus far! Yesterday I completed two stages and feeling like I am on the final stretch The Hope Cycle! Hope to finish this last week off with a bang : ) 

Stage 5: Montville | Tech Issues

Monday 29th Aug
After a few days off, struggling with tech issues, I have re-identified the reasons for doing The Hope Cycle. I am cycling to raise awareness and vital funds for Lifeline. Hence accepting my technical issues and enjoying the stages to the best of my ability. Today was a fun and shorter ride throughout Queensland! Glad to be back, supporting an incredible organisation and riding!!! 

Stage 4 was tough!

Wednesday 24th Aug
Today was my hardest ride as I found it quite challenging doing it at night and being very sleep deprived! Aha Nonetheless, enjoyed the beautiful sceneries of the Great Ocean Rd and look forward to tomorrow night in Queensland!  

Margaret River Stage 3!

Tuesday 23rd Aug
Felt good after today’s ride! So great to have already achieved my goal of $500. Thank you to all my sponsors who have donated so far! Today was a little bit of a challenge having started work at 4:40am this morning and my bum a little sore from the past couple days. Nonetheless, still had a lot of fun seeing the sites of Margaret River in my lounge room whilst being physically active 😍😍😍

Stage 2 Complete: Tasmania

Tuesday 23rd Aug
So much fun riding today! Must admit was a bit harder than yesterday because was just that little bit longer. Highlight was virtually riding around my home time 😁

First Stage of Hope Cycle Complete!

Sunday 21st Aug

Thanks to everyone who has sponsored me so far in doing the Hope Cycle this year. It is amazing to be apart of such a worthy cause. Evidently shown through the 30% increase in Lifeline calls since COVID. Show your support and sponsor me here : )


Started off with a success:

  • 2nd overall on leaderboard for stage 1
  • Over $200+ so far in donated funds
  • So much fun riding virtually around Uluru

First Training Ride for The Hope Cycle | ALL READY TO GO!!

Tuesday 2nd Aug
Hi, my name is Imogen Ball!

This year I'll be taking part in The Hope Cycle Tour of Australia - presented by Lifeline for Metro Trains Melbourne as a Leading Station Assistant and Wellness Advocate. I am honoured to be raising money for Lifeline, a non-for profit organisation that continues to save Australians everyday, through a 24/7 suicide prevention service. 

Today I was fortunate enough to setup my bike trainer and complete my first training ride on the FULGAZ program (program used for The Hope Cycle). I had so much fun - even though harder than expected! 😅 

My goal is to raise $500 for lifeline and would love your support through donating to my fundraiser webpage!! Also encourage everyone to take part and ride The Hope Cycle starting 20th of August :)
