More than 300 people are expected to get out and be active on Saturday at the Tatura200 charity bike ride.November 9, 2012 11:11am
The event consists of four rides of distances between 25 km and 200 km.
After a successful first run last year, the 5 km and 10 km walks will also return, catering to those without wheels who are keen to support the day.
Now in its fifth year, the ride has raised more than $300 000 for local charities.
Participants can nominate a preferred charity which will be considered by a committee, and 100 per cent of the funds raised go back into the community.
Event co-ordinator Karen Saccuzzo said they were hoping to raise at least $8000 at this year’s ride.
Ms Saccuzzo said it was great to see interest in the event from locals and visitors.
‘‘It’s a local event that people don’t have to travel far to go to but we do get people from all over.
‘‘One of the sponsors is coming all the way from Singapore to participate.’’
After months of careful planning, Ms Saccuzzo said the success of the day would now be out of her hands.
‘‘I am now watching the weather reports very closely hoping for a nice day and the wind blowing the right way.’’
The Tatura200 charity bike ride is on Saturday, November 10, departing from the Tatura Lawn Tennis Club, Albert St, Tatura.
The first of the day’s rides will start at 7 am with the remaining events being staggered throughout the morning.
People can register on the day and costs vary between events.
