Steve takes a Long Ride for a Great Cause

May 9, 2013

Local Lion, Steve Adams is, with the assistance and encouragement of the local Lions Club taking part in the Long Ride 2013 Charity Ride for Men’s Health.

He will leavSteve left Bingara on May 5 to meet up with fellow riders and will arrive in Cairns on May 11. Some riders are travelling from as far as Perth, thus the title of “The Long Ride”.

Steve is hoping to raise at least $1000.00 in donations and sponsorship from local people and businesses, and is entering to help spread the word about Prostate Cancer Awareness. “If every rider or participant raised $1000.00 what a difference this would make” Steve stated.

The Bingara Lions Club has already committed to sponsoring Steve by donating their RSL raffle earnings from early March until his departure in May.

Steve has also been given ‘in principal’, support from a number of local businesses, who in turn encourage other businesses, which will further raise awareness for Men’s Health.

The Bingara MPS Community Health nurses will be organising a “Men’s Health” morning for Saturday, May 25, which will include a fund raising barbecue with the proceeds going towards the Long Ride and then onto the Prostate Cancer Awareness Foundation.

To sponsor Steve, you can contact him on his home phone 02 6729 4132, mobile phone 0427 24 1699 or email windi01@bigpond.com All proceeds this year will be donated to the Prostate Cancer Awareness Foundation.
