First National Commercial Geraldton manager Dave Tyson has announced he is supporting the 2016 MACA Ride To Conquer Cancer fundraising initiative, which benefits the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research.
The bike ride is held on the 15th and 16th of October and covers a total of 200 kilometres from Perth to Mandurah and back. Each year thousands of men and women participate in the ride with over $15,000,000 being raised for cancer research during the past 4 years.
‘My wife and I have each lost family and close friends to cancer and we are both committed to raising research funds so we will one day see a cure for cancer’ says Mr Tyson.
‘To participate in the 200 kilometre ride in October, I need to raise $2,500. So far I’ve raised $1,600 so I still have some way to go to reach my goal however the Geraldton public has been extremely generous so far.’ says Mr Tyson.
‘I’m asking everybody in my local community to get behind me with any donation they can afford. It doesn’t matter how small or large; every donation will help researchers get closer to a cure for cancer.’
