Major open heart surgery as a four-year-old child taught Jeremy that life was precious and something to cherish. He began to see life as a rollercoaster ride, filled with challenges and experiences. Some of those challenges were forced upon him, others were of his own design.
On the 5th October 2011, Jeremy began a challenge that was of his own design, a journey that was many years in the planning; a 2 ½ year, 51,916km unsupported bicycle ride from London to New Zealand. As he pedalled his way around the planet he accumulated more than enough kilometres to circumnavigate the earth.
At the conclusion of this phenomenal journey, Jeremy wrote the highly successful book ‘The Long Road From a Broken Heart’ and now dedicates his life to inspiring others.
As a passionate supporter of numerous charities, Jeremy has recently been awarded the 2015 Australian Heart Foundation ‘Heart Hero’ Award for his work raising funds, awareness and inspiring others with heart disease.
