Led by prostate cancer survivor, Malcolm McGinn and friends David McAdam and Eric Myers, the group is committed to raising funds for the purchase of less-invasive optic-fibre equipment that greatly improves early cancer detection.
Mr McGinn is also encouraging the discussion of men’s health issues and the value of the ‘support your mate’ message for those unlucky enough to require treatment.
“Early detection is vital, and we need to make every effort to encourage men to have regular checks,” said Mr McGinn.
Keith and Julia Glossop, Secura Park managers of BIG4 Borderland Holiday Park in Wodonga, Victoria, will be hosting the ‘posties’ for two nights from 21-22 August and donating half their stay to the cause.
“We admire the gumption of the riders, braving the Victorian winter for such a good cause,” Mr Glossop said.
“We encourage the local community to come along and give these inspirational riders a big Wodonga welcome at a gold-coin donation barbecue at 3pm on Sunday 21 August.”
BIG4 Borderland Holiday Park is located at 65 McKoy Street, Wodonga.
In addition to support provided by the numerous BIG4 Holiday Parks along the way, the campaign is being sponsored by the Claremont Rotary Club of Tasmania, while Australia Post is providing the motorbikes, Spirit of Tasmania is helping with the Bass Strait crossing, and a number of other organisations are also involved.
