SouthWest Bike Trek raises more than $35,000 for child cancer research

A huge congratulations to the 12 riders who completed a 600km bike ride across WA’s South West, raising a total of $36,376* to help fund vital research to combat childhood cancers.

The team made it to the finish line, relatively unscathed, at Cape Leewin Lighthouse, Augusta, seven days after beginning their journey in Subiaco.

The trek stopped at many locations in WA’s South West along the way, with the team overwhelmed by the support of local communities.

A big thank you to the Leeuwin Lions Club, The Busselton Rotary, Business and Professional Women’s Association, Lions Club of Waroona, Rotary and Lions Club of Harvey, South Bunbury Rotary and several other organisations who kept the hungry riders fed as well as offering generous donations and, in some cases, offering a place to sleep for the night.

Local schools also joined in on the ride, including St Joseph’s School in Waroona and Harvey Primary School who brought along 65 kids and the school principal for a bit of fresh air and exercise.

The event has raised close to $700,000 for child cancer research projects over 16 years. It’s not too late to donate! Donate now to the South West Bike Trek!
