Paul, who worked with the Melbourne Fire Brigade as a professional firefighter, and the Victorian Ambulance Service and Tasmanian Ambulance Service as a Paramedic, is an inspiration.

He is the brains behind Lifestyle Communities’ Tour de Lifestyle, which raised a staggering $80,573 this month for The Royal Children’s Hospital Foundation Melbourne. With the land lease operator matching all donations, $161,146 is being handed over.

Paul, a homeowner at Lifestyle Deanside, and fellow homeowners pedal (or run) to the 20 Lifestyle Communities across Victoria. The 600km journey is complemented by community walks and fundraising events planned when the riders arrived at a community. There were guest speakers from the Royal Children’s Hospital to shed light on the incredible impact that donations make in supporting children with cancer.

The tour began at Lifestyle Shepparton before concluding at Lifestyle Deanside.

James Kelly, Lifestyle Communities Managing Director, said: “This was just such an amazing event and congratulations and thank you to everyone who worked so hard to make this such a success. Just so pleased the Lifestyle Foundation could match every cent that was raised and what a fantastic outcome. Bring on Tour de Lifestyle 2025!”
