March 17 sees the start of the 2018 Rotary District 9790 Ride to Conference.
Seventeen cyclists and two support crew, from all over our Rotary District will undertake a 654km ride over six days to raise funds for Australian Rotary Health (ARH).
The Ride to Conference is a project of the Rotary Club of Corowa, started by members Graham and Margaret Brown.
This is the 10th year the ride has been run and as with past rides each one is given a name representing the course the riders will be taking; this year’s ride is called the “Riverina Ramble”.
Traditionally the ride starts at the conference venue and returns to the venue.
This year’s ride will commence at Mulwala, where they will be waved off by District Governor Bernie Bott and then on to the Hume Weir, Tumbarumba, Holbrook, The Rock, Howlong and finally back to Mulwala on Thursday, March 22.
Funds raised from the rides goes to providing a medical scholarship for indigenous medical students, as well as assist with funding the various mental health programs Australian Rotary Health is involved in.
If anyone would like to donate to the ride they can do so direct debit into the ARH bank account BSB 112 879, account number 065 433 595, using the reference RTC9790, also send an email to [email protected] to receive a tax deductible receipt.
