Cyclists ride for dementia

Cycling enthusiasts Nick Young and Pierre Sullivan, together with 80 cyclists, are preparing to undertake Dementia Australia’s biggest national community fundraising event – the Bondi2Berry Ride to Remember.

Established in 2016, the Bondi2Berry Ride to Remember has raised more than $131,000 for Dementia Australia. This year the ride will take place during Dementia Awareness Month in September. Riders will take off from Bondi on Saturday 8 September with a target to raise more than $100,000.

Dementia Australia CEO Maree McCabe said events like Bondi2Berry are fantastic and not only raise funds but also awareness to help reduce the stigma and social isolation that can be experienced by people living with dementia, their families and carers.

“Dementia Australia sincerely thanks event organisers Nick, Pierre and the team for putting together an event that is fun, challenging and provides a great opportunity for people to come together and support Dementia Australia’s important work,” Ms McCabe said.

“On behalf of the estimated 425,000 Australians living with dementia, I encourage all those who want to donate to this fundraising event to visit the Bondi2Berry website and give generously."

Both Nick and Pierre have parents diagnosed with dementia, and are pleased to see their passion for cycling turn in to a shared passion for raising funds and increasing community awareness about dementia. 

“We are proud to see the Bondi2Berry ride grow, and excited to be back this year to help raise awareness of dementia. All of the riders participate because, like most people in the community, they are touched by this condition, and want to contribute to finding a cure,” Nick said.

As a cyclist of many years, this is one of my favourite events and I shall most certainly be taking part. 

Remember folks, dementia does not discriminate, so give what you can. 

 

 

All riders will receive a unique Bondi2Berry event jersey and an event pack with other great products. Bike mechanics and nutrition on course, and a free BBQ at the finish line in Berry.

You will also receive an invitation to attend the Bondi2Berry launch night and the post ride event at the Berry Hotel on Saturday evening.

            

Some 155Km ...good on you for taking up the challenge and the cause.

Well done , cycling is great exercise.

Good on you Ray. Wish I was as fit as you m'boy!

So actually cyclists are not the 'devil incarnate' when raising funds for charity then? Only when training for the event or riding to work, right?

There's good and bad on both sides. Most cyclists observe road rules as do most drivers. The couriers are a law onto themselves and annoy even me.

If everyone exercised some self control both would enjoy using the road. Don't forget to donate!

Ray-- Yes you are correct on all accounts. My opinion. Happy pedalling :-))

 

Have no time for these so called "fund raiser" cyclists

Anyone who feels like donating to a casue, should just do it direct to the respective organization

Did someone ask your opinion???

I contacted the spell caster for help due to the fact that i needed my EX lover desperately because he is my husband and my life. To God be the glory my husband came back to me within 48 hours after Dr.Edward finished preparing the Reunion love spell and i want the world to join me and thank him for helping me. Anyone reading my testimony and also need his help should contact him with his below details.
