On Sunday 11th October, The South West Bike Trek begins in Perth and finishes in Augusta on Saturday, 17th October. The event will involve 15 mature aged riders, who will make the 600km trek to raise money for the Children’s Leukemia & Cancer Research Foundation (CLCRF).
The South West Bike Trek is the biggest purely volunteer run fundraising event for childhood cancer in WA and since it started in 2002, has raised close to $700,000 for CLCRF.
This year, organizers are calling for the public to “adopt a rider” in an effort to assist the fundraising efforts of the 15 incredible riders who have signed up for the challenge. Due to COVID-19 severely impacting the riders’ ability to fundraise, schools are also being encouraged to support riders by holding gold coin donation days.
It’s such a wonderful event that almost never happened this year due to COVID-19 and they’d love to get the word out about this incredibly important event.
There are a number of riders from Mandurah and surrounds involved in the trek as well!
The 2020 South West Bike Trek is expected to follow the below schedule:
Day 1 Sunday 11 October – South Perth to Fairbridge
Day 2 Monday 12 October – Fairbridge to Preston return
Day 3 Tuesday 13 October – Fairbridge to Harvey
Day 4 Wednesday 14 October – Harvey to Bunbury
