Mr Campbell will join 40 mountain bikers on September 6 in the Ride For Someone Who Can’t.

In the 100km challenge, participants ride for someone living with muscular dystrophy.

Mr Campbell will ride for eight-year-old Jordan Rogers.

It will be Mr Campbell’s sixth Dwellingup100 but his first time for the charity.

‘I know other mountain bikers who have ‘ridden for someone who can’t’ and seen the passion from Muscular Dystrophy WA chief executive John Gummer when he says thank you at the presentations,’ he said.

‘It’s my turn to contribute.’

Since 2010, more than $360,000 has been raised through the ride. This year the Muscular Dystrophy WA team aims to raise another $110,000 to support people living with the condition, for more research and for community services.

Mr Gummer, who will also ride, said support for those with the disease was dependent on funds raised at events such as Ride For Someone Who Can’t.
