Around Australia Ride 2013 (AAR), a major fundraising event for the Steven Walter Children’s Cancer Foundation

Steven Walter Children’s Cancer Foundation

You may already be aware that Dale and I are going to ride around Australia in May 2013 on our motorcycle as a fundraiser and awareness campaign for the Steven Walter Children’s Cancer Foundation. We are travelling with four very close friends from Cooma and another 30 people we don’t know yet, be assured we are going to have a fantastic trip over the five weeks.

All those going have agreed to raise funds for the foundation for a very specific research program before we go, and all riders and pillions are paying their own cost for the trip, so if you help us with fundraising all the monies 100% will go to Childhood Cancer Research.

We have a website page which will give you heaps more information on what we are up to – http://www.southeastprinting.com.au/around-australia-ride/

AROUND AUSTRALIA RIDE

The Cooma Crew, Andrew & Kathy Manthey, Brian & Dale Coyte and Jack & Di Nott will be participating in the Around Australia Ride 2013 (AAR), a major fundraising event for the Steven Walter Children’s Cancer Foundation. And we are looking for your support.

The AAR will start in the first week of May 2013, the exact date has to be worked out yet. The distance will be around 14000kms and is all tar sealed except for the parts that have been dug up. Each rider is set a fundraising target of $5000 and pillions a target of $2500.

All members of the Cooma Crew have been involved with the SWCCF’s major annual fundraising event, The Snowy Ride, since its inception. The Coyte’s and Nott’s are original founding members of the Snowy Hyrdo Family Program. This program hosts families with a child suffering cancer, over the Snowy Ride weekend, treating them to a wonderful weekend in our beautiful Snowy Mountains Region. Kathy Manthey has been involved with rider registration and organisation of the traffic control for all the checkpoints and assists greatly with the logistics of the ride. Andrew Manthey for many years picked up broken bikes and does all the jobs that no one else wants to do.

All the funds we raise will go directly to SWCCF and all accommodation, fuel and other costs associated with us going on the AAR will be covered by each of us personally.

Fundraising events will include a great raffle prize, a 4 day escorted motorcycle ride through Victoria and joy rides at the Cooma Rotary Markets. Come down to the Markets on the Sunday 21.10.12 to book your ride and see the Steven Walter Foundation ST1300. Click on the icons below for more information about these events.

Thank you to everyone who attended our Wine Tasting Night.

The Steven Walter Children’s Cancer Foundation (SWCCF) is a not-for-profit foundation with a strategic plan to develop a significant long term fundraising capacity to benefit childhood cancer research in Australia.

Steven Walter Children’s Cancer Foundation works closely with the Children’s Cancer Centres at both the Sydney Children’s Hospital Randwick and the Royal Children’s Hospital Melbourne. Both organisations share the resolute objective of achieving increased survival rates for children with cancer, a task simply not possible without public support through fundraising.

  • In 2012, 500 Australian children will sadly be diagnosed with cancer.
  • Tragically 150 of them will lose their battle with this dreadful disease.
  • In Australia, for every 10 children diagnosed with cancer, three do not survive.
  • Three children every week this year will lose their battle with cancer, we believe this is three children too many.
  • Of those brave children who do survive, many will have chronic health problems as a direct result of their treatments.
