Building on Success
The Male Bag Ride 2018 follows in the tread marks of our 2013 trans-Australian ride from Perth to Melbourne, a ride in Tasmania, followed by rides in Gippsland and the Murray River and District. To date we have raised over $800,000
for research and specialist equipment and services for regional centres including Ballarat, Bairnsdale, Echuca and Bendigo.
Our 2018 Mission
In 2018 our donations will be directed to improved prostate services in regional NSW centres. We have set a fund-raising target of $300,000 so we can supply biopsy machines to regional centres. But we want to raise more and improve the lives of patients, families and communities.
