Rural Aid’s first foray into the world of cycling kicks off with our Beach to Bush Ride, September 2019. We want you to be part of this amazing event!
At a time when we are meant to be connected as a society – isolation, loneliness, depression, suicide and mental health rates are all climbing. Rates are even higher in regional and rural areas, due to remoteness and the stresses on farmers as a result of devastating experiences. This September we don’t only want to raise awareness for Mental Health issues amongst our farmers, but also raise $150,000 to place one new counsellor in rural Australia.
Rural Aid, along with your efforts, aims to raise much needed funds to support our farmers and rural communities.
The Beach to Bush Ride gives us the opportunity to assist in this worthy cause and concentrate our efforts where help is needed most.
How it works? Measure out a distance between a major country town and a major beach, and challenge yourself to accumulate the equivalent distance over the month of September. Log your kilometres on your profile page, and raise money for every kilometre you ride. Whether you ride for recreation, or to commute, or prefer to get on an exercise bike at the gym, every kilometre counts.
Not a cyclist? Not a problem! If walking of running is your thing, that works too.
This is your opportunity to really make a difference to the many communities across NSW that have been hit hard by the current drought. To sign up for some fun and hard work: Register Now.
