Murray to Moyne riders on their bikes for Castlemaine Health

From 1-2 April 2017, a dedicated group of local riders will take to the road for the annual Murray to Moyne cycle relay. Riding as the “Castlemaine Rouleurs”, 16 local men and women will complete the 520km route from Echuca to Port Fairy to raise much-needed funds for Castlemaine Health.

Presented by Moyne Health Services in Port Fairy, the event raises money for health services across Victoria.

Local cyclists have been riding in various teams for the thirty years of the Murray to Moyne Charity Ride. Thanks to their efforts and the generous support of the Castlemaine community, Castlemaine Health has been able to purchase much-needed equipment and improve facilities for patients and residents, and their families.

This year, the riders will be raising money for a new electrocardiogram (ECG) machine and carbon dioxide (CO2) monitor. Both are vital parts of the hospital’s theatre equipment.

Castlemaine Rouleurs’ Team Captain, Gary Bunn, has been riding in the Murray to Moyne since 1996.

He said: “The ride brings out the best in those participating, and we’re grateful for the support of families, friends and the generous Castlemaine community.”

“We love supporting the local health service – especially given the vital role it plays in the community. We all rely on it and we’re very lucky to have it on our doorstep,” he said.

Riders are also selling raffle tickets and wine as part of their fundraising efforts. Welshman’s Reef Shiraz and Chardonnay are $10 a bottle or $100 for a dozen. Contact the individual riders or call 5471 1505.
