The Last Leg - Bob Montgomery
Bob completed his biggest achievement yet - 4,400 kms ride from Darwin to Perth in June last year. In the process he raised some $55,000, which was distributed equally to support Motor Neurone Disease (MND) and Huntington's Disease. He is now getting prepared for The Last Leg, from Darwin to Port Douglas. Setting out in July and arriving 3,000 kms later in Port Douglas on 17th August, this ride will complete his lap around Australia. Not a bad effort from a 74 year old.
To put a greater emphasis on research Bob has partnered with Iggy Get Out, an innovative organisation coordinating global research into MND and other neurodegenerative diseases. He continues his close association with Huntington's NSW & ACT where our donations last year helped fund a youth support person. This time Bob is endeavouring to raise $100,000 for MND and Huntington's.
To kick off our fundraising we start with our Golf Day on 22nd April at Blackheath Golf Club, see below for all details.
