The Ronald McDonald House Ride for Sick Kids may not involve Broken Hill representatives this year, but the sick kids still need support. 

Despite the Ride for Sick Kids original ride plan from Melbourne to Adelaide being cancelled due to COVID-19 and our local riders not being able to partake in the replacement ride for 2020 around Kangaroo Island, local riders are doing their part to raise funds for sick kids in Ronald McDonald House Adelaide. 

“Sick kids still need our help, in fact they probably need more help during these difficult times,” said Mark Craven. “Last year team Broken Hill raised over $65,000 and we’re hopeful to raise this sum again with the amazing support of the Broken Hill community.”

This year’s local riders see Mark Craven, Tim Ferguson and Trystan Summers approach their second ride, while first timers Nigel Lawrence and Nash Mitchell join the group. 

The Broken Hill riders are hoping to plan and complete their own ride locally on the weekend that the ride is set to take place in Kangaroo Island. 

One of the annual major fundraisers is the golf day which will take place on Sunday, September 13, from 10am, the Ambrose event has over $1000 worth of prizes on offer. 

The entry fee is just $50 per person, which includes the golf game, two $5 magic squares as well as a barbecue and refreshments. 

Bookings can be made via the Golf Club on 8087 9099, with a phone number and email address required for each participant upon booking and COVID-safe measures will be in place. You can pre-pay via eftpos by contacting Mark Craven on 0411 744 978.
