THE bells were ringing through Fremantle streets recently when 25 cyclists rolled into town as part of a four-day ride fundraising for some of Perth’s sickest children.
The Ride for Sick Kids cyclists set off from Ronald McDonald House in Nedlands on a 295km, four-day loop with stopovers in a number of Perth’s most picturesque locations, including Fremantle.
Ronald McDonald House Perth chief executive Peter King said it had been a memorable event for all those involved.
“It is always great fun whether you’re a first-time cyclist or a Ride for Sick Kids veteran,” he said.
“It’s a great mix of people who loving coming together, united by their passions for supporting such a great cause.
“Fundraising initiatives like Ride for Sick Kids are crucial in not only raising donations for the Ronald McDonald Charities, but also sharing stories of the riders who give up their time to take part and the families who will benefit from this generosity.”
Mr King said more than $280,000 had been raised during this year’s event, with the funds going to important Ronald McDonald House Charities programs helping sick children and their families.
