Ride to Conquer Cancer: Peard staff do their bit to raise funds

PEARD Real Estate took part in the fifth annual Ride to Conquer Cancer on October 15 and 16 to raise money for cancer research.

The Perth event comprised a two-day, 200km return journey from Taylor Reserve in Victoria Park to Hall Park in Mandurah, with an overnight campout.

Peard’s team captain David Lynch and Sam Mannino (both from the Scarborough office), Les Lindsay (Hillarys office), Pauline Lyon (Joondalup office) and Shaun Pettit (Leederville office) raised more than $18,500, which will go to the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research.

“I have attended the event since its conception and was awarded a gold medal this year to recognise that,” Mr Lynch said.

“Over those five years, various members of Peard have joined the team, generally because they have been connected in some way to someone who has battled with cancer, raising more than $55,000.”
