Local paramedics have raised a whopping $19,200 for Movember through their recent ride from Deniliquin to Broken Hill.
The Moto Muster group – Deniliquin paramedics Michael Everett, Bob Crampton and Ian Pollard, and Hillston paramedic Luke Randall – took part in the four-day ride to raise money for the prostate and testicular cancer and mental health awareness month.
Also supporting the cause by growing moustaches were local paramedics Peter Dawson, who drove alongside the riders, and Andrew Hillman.
The paramedics rode their Honda CB125E bikes just over 1500km through towns including Albury, Wagga, Wellington and Dubbo, stopping at 17 ambulance stations along the way.
Mr Everett said it was ‘‘just amazing how well the ride went off’’.
‘‘We were very welcome at each town,’’ he said.
‘‘We visited pubs, schools, men’s sheds and clubs like Rotary. Some places had events organised, barbecues and other bits and pieces too.
‘‘We managed to raise $7500 just from the ride.’’
