G’day my name Is Jack

My team and I will be delivering an exciting social impact project this November in Western Australia – The Munda Biddi Dreaming project.

At the heart of the project is my personal DREAM to succeed in riding the 1,067km Munda Biddi Trail against a clock that never stops and establishing an Ultra Cycling World Record, commencing in the Shire of Mundaring and concluding at Centenary Park Albany – an expected journey time of 2 1/2 days.

As a professional Ultra Cyclist, living with mental health challenges, I’m passionate about giving back to the community. My vision is to share my journey through the storytelling of the physical and mental challenges I faced in preparing for the project, the attempt and its outcome and inspire the next generation of dreamers that in life you can DREAM big and succeed.

I will be sharing my DREAM with an estimated 5,000 children and communities of Albany, Nannup, Manjimup, Vasse, Busselton, Mundaring and Perth (Scotch College).

The Munda Biddi Dreaming project will be captured by a documentary crew who will produce a 15-minute documentary. We anticipate releasing the documentary in January 2024 at an exclusive sponsors and key project partners invitational evening.

I look forward to your support and welcoming me to the community of Albany on Monday 27th November where I’ll share with you what it takes to DREAM big.

Warm regards

Jack Thompson – Multiple World Record Holder
