Ride 780 km from Cairns to Karumba for Fun and Fundraising for remote schools
On the first week of this school holidays I will be embarking on a 780km dirt ride from Cairns to Karumba to raise money to connect kids in Far North Queensland with educational opportunities.
Despite initial reservations, I reckon I can ride 780 kms in 7 days, particularly with the help of the sag wagon. This is a great cause – everyone deserves an education wherever they live, and to boot I’ve never cycled in FNQ and really looking forward to an adventure with a bunch of like minded people. Please consider contributing whatever you can because every dollar can make a difference to a kids life and future.
By raising funds and riding from Cairns to Karumba we connect students in Far North Queensland with educational opportunities. To date the event has raised and distributed in excess of $1,140,000. Beneficiaries include: Cairns School of Distance Education, Primary Schools – Mt Garnet, Mt Surprise, Georgetown, Croydon, Normanton and Karumba as well as child care centres, sports associations and more. The event is a bike ride of 780 km over 7 days from Cairns, over the Atherton Tablelands to Karumba on the Gulf of Carpentaria.
I am raising money for educational opportunities for children living in the outback and remote areas.
I am a sixty one year old, breast cancer survivor who has been training up week after week to raise money for this great cause. I will be riding along with my husband, two of my sons, my brother and sister in law.
Please help me to raise funds for children in remote areas to access educational, sporting and cultural opportunities by making a donation. Any small amount will make a difference.
I am looking forward to the challenge and spirit of the ride and enjoying the beautiful Australian outback by bike!
