CLCRF’s very own Executive Assistant, Katie Lush, is joining this year’s South West Bike Trek. This morning Katie spoke with Sue Myc on 89.7 Twin Cities FM’s morning show about the ride, what she’s looking forward to and why she feels the need to ride for such a good cause.
In case you missed the interview you can listen below:
On Sunday 7 October, 12 riders will embark on a six-day bike ride from Subiaco to Augusta for the Southwest Bike Trek to raise vital funds and awareness for the Children’s Leukaemia and Cancer Research Foundation (CLCRF).
The journey across WA’s iconic South West region, which is more than 300km, will start at Mueller Park, Subiaco, stopping off en route at Fairbridge, Preston Beach, Harvey, Eaton, Busselton and Margaret River before finishing at Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse, Augusta on Saturday 13 October.
Childhood cancer is the single greatest cause of death from disease in Australian children, with three children losing their lives to cancer every week. Childhood cancer is second only to breast cancer in terms of the number of years of life lost by the disease.
Donations to the Children’s Leukaemia and Cancer Research Foundation (Inc.) help fund valuable scientific research into childhood cancers. Over the past 30 years CLCRF has made amazing breakthroughs into the treatment children receive. It is because of this research that those children have an opportunity to live long and fulfilling lives.
The first ever SouthWest Bike Trek took place back in 2002 and has raised just under $700,000 for child cancer research projects over 16 years.
If you would like to donate to help Katie and her fellow riders raise vital funds please donate now.
