A group of seven cyclists recently completed a cancer fundraising ride of 540km with money raised going to the Australian Cancer Research Foundation. They took three days to complete the ride, which went from Mudgee to Dubbo, Gilgandra, Warren, Nevertire and back to Mudgee.
All of the riders at some stage have been indirectly affected by cancer and have decided to use their passion for cycling to help find a cure.
Dave Berry, one of the cyclists raising funds for cancer research said “although the pain that we will go through pales in significance next to a cancer patient, we hope that our efforts will encourage people to donate generously to the Australian Cancer Research Foundation and help the dedicated researchers find a cure for cancer”.
The participants in the ride described it as a very humbling yet satisfying experience and a great opportunity for them to take some time out to do something with their mates whilst raising money for a good cause.
We are very appreciative of these passionate cyclists who have just this morning surpassed their cancer fundraising target of $15,000 which was increased from their original target of $10,000. Amazing effort. Thanks Dave, Pete, Nick, Tim, Bill, Ben, Andrew, James, Hugh and all your generous sponsors and supporters including V-Mark Design and Shead Property for this amazing support!
