Couch Cancer Ride
From May 18th to May 26th, 10 cyclists road for an average of 200kms per day on a self-funded mission to raise money for the COUCH Wellness Centre.
Over $70, 000 was raised for the COUCH CancerWellness Centre
A huge thank-you to the riders, support crew, sponsors and family and friends for supporting this great initiative.
Cairns charity organisation COUCH is raising funds to build and operate the Wellness Centre to assist in cancer treatment recovery on land donated by the Woodward family.
As ride co-founder and cancer survivor Michael Bowmaker explains:
“The ride is a huge challenge physically, however it’s nothing compared to the challenge faced by people going through cancer treatment. All of us will be affected in some way by cancer during our lifetime, either directly or indirectly. By donating to the riders, you’ll not only be helping other locals – but perhaps one of your own family members.”
