A band of cyclists will cover 600km through the South West early next year to raise vital funds for Solaris Cancer Care.
The Red Sky Ride, in its 14th year, has raised more than $4 million, enabling Solaris to provide critical support for cancer patients and their families. With more than 13,300 West Australians diagnosed with cancer every year, Solaris has provided support, counselling and services value at more than $1.74 million without charge
Solaris is the only organisation in WA to provide such services to adults affected by any type of cancer, at every stage of their cancer journey. With fundraising seriously affected by COVID-19 restrictions, Solaris is seeking community and business support.
Solaris chairperson Professor David Joske said: “Cancer touches many lives regardless of global pandemics and economic meltdowns.” With no Government funding, their annual Red Sky Ride has been integral to Solaris’ continued services.”
The four-day Red Sky Ride will start at Solaris’ centre in Cottesloe on March 3 with riders heading through the Ferguson Valley and Bunbury before returning to Perth. Cyclists have started their intensive training regimes, gearing up for the physical challenge ahead.With an individual fundraising target of $3000, each rider is raising much-needed funds for Solaris.
