FORMER Western Reds rugby league captain Matt Fuller is set to crack the $1 million mark during his 10th 24hr Fitness Challenge for Telethon this year.

The West Leederville resident and Fuller Fitness owner will be joined by Soa ‘The Hulk’ Palelei, Josh Catalano, Maddy Andrijich, Matt Campbell, Jono Cridland and cancer survivor Gary Howarth for this year’s 24-hour ride at the Perth Convention Exhibition Centre this Saturday.

Mr Fuller will be joined by his two children Lachlan (13) and Trinity (11) for a quarter of the ride.

“They did the first hour and last hour last year but will be doing about six hours this year, with a plan for them to ride as a duo next year,” Mr Fuller said.

“The future of the Fitness Challenge is about getting as many kids as possible involved and fundraising for Telethon.”

Mr Fuller said the challenge had become easier every year because he learnt how to train and prepare and knew when the toughest times were: in the early hours of Sunday morning and just before dusk.

People can join in the challenge by buying a bike for $4800. To donate, visit https://bit.ly/24hrspin.
