McDonald's licensee cycles for kids
FIVE hundred kilometres in five days is a demanding ride for any cyclist but for local McDonald’s licensee David Munro, the ride will be worth the effort.
Mr Munro will be riding in the seventh annual ‘Hadley Cycles Ride for Sick Kids’ in aid of Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC).
“Ronald McDonald House Charities is an absolute blessing for Northern NSW residents, providing a home away from home for ill children and their families.
“It’s a privilege to be part of this fantastic fundraising initiative,” Mr Munro said.
One of 25 cyclists taking part, Mr Munro volunteered in recognition of RMHC’s work in our region. And since becoming a father, the work of RMHC had taken on a different meaning for him.
“You appreciate the impact the charity has on families, and you want to do everything you possibly can to help,” he said.
The demanding 535km charity bike ride kicks off in Armidale tomorrow.
With stops at Tamworth, Scone, Muswellbrook, Lovedale, Cessnock, Terrigal and The Entrance, the ride finishes at Ronald McDonald House in Newcastle on Saturday, September 3.
Every dollar raised along the five-day cycle ride will help ‘Ride for Sick Kids’ reach its $1.5 million target and be used make a difference in the lives of seriously-ill children and their families who rely on the services provided by RMHC.
