Snowy Ride Brings Thousands to Thredbo and Hundreds of Thousands to the Kids.
Posted on Friday, 11th of November 2011
The Snowy Ride is Australia’s largest community motorcycle event and after 11 years it is still going strong. Organisers were stunned last weekend when against their expectations over 3100 riders signed up for the event. After a huge turnout last year for the 10th anniversary they didn’t think the 3000 barrier would be broken again so soon.
Riders were rewarded for their support with picture perfect weather on Saturday for the mass ride into Thredbo (see our video) . The event is organised by the Steven Walter Fund to raise money for childhood cancer research. Steven Walter was a keen young motorcycle rider who lost his battle with cancer and in his last days, asked that something be done to fight the disease that took his life. His mother Sue and friends started the Snowy Ride to raise money for the cause and it has gone from strength to strength, raising in excess of $4 million since it began.
The Lantern Property group donates to the ride every year. If you would like to donate go to: http://snowyride.org.au/
