Depression research fundraiser makes its way to Seymour.CHALPAT SONTI September 5, 2014 3:39am
Dozens of motorbike riders descended on Seymour and Nagambie last week, and it was all for a good cause.
They were part of the annual Black Dog ride, featuring motorcyclists from across Australia, which raises awareness of depression.
It has also raised more than $1.3 million for organisations working in the field — this year the recipients will be Lifeline and Mental Health First Aid.
While the riders were in Seymour as part of the Victorian state ride — they stayed overnight August 26 — they were catered for at Kings Park by the Lions Clubs of Seymour and Seymour-Goulburn.
But apart from cooking the evening meal, both organisations also presented the Victorian state co-ordinator of the ride, Ric Raftis, with a donation.
