Riding for Country Kids 2015

Thursday, 5 March 2015

It’s only a few weeks before the Royal Far West 2015 Ride for Country Kids officially kicks off in Moree. The National Rural Health Alliance is encouraging people to support the initiative by sponsoring a team or rider. This charity fundraiser and cycling challenge is raising funds to support the work of Royal Far West in providing health services to country kids.

Individual riders and teams, led by ambassador and former professional cyclist Scott Sunderland, will follow a 500km route from Moree to Tamworth, passing through other NSW country towns including Narrabri and Gunnedah.

Accompanying the ride will also be a Ronald McDonald Care Mobile to provide health and health education services to children in local schools and communities.

“The Ride for Country Kids is one of our signature fundraising activities that supports us in continuing our work in caring for country kids. Importantly, it also gives the riders the chance to see ‘first hand’ how Royal Far West supports isolated country families,” Royal Far West CEO, Lindsay Cane said.

Royal Far West was pleased to formally launch the Ride in Moree in early February with the support of the Mayor of Moree Plains Shire Council, Cr Katrina Humphries, and players from the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles.

The Ride for Country Kids will be held from March 15-18, 2015.

You can sponsor a team or rider on the Riding for Country Kids 2015 website.
