Bob has just completed his biggest achievement yet - 4,400 kms ride from Darwin to Perth. With challenging conditions and rides of up to 240kms on some days it is a remarkable effort for anyone, let alone a 73 year old. He finished on 20th June 2017 and will have raised more than $50,000 from this ride and the lead up events. This time we included Huntington's Disease (HD) as well as MND. HD is a similar neurological disease, always fatal with no cure, and which causes extreme distress to both victims and their families. All monies raised will distributed equally to MND NSW and Huntington's NSW. Apart from the dollars, we believe this ride built on his previous MND rides but helped draw attention to HD which is not often talked about. We met so many wonderful people along the way, many shared their stories on how they were directly impacted, or knew someone, effected by these diseases. Whilst the actual ride has finished we will continue with the fundraising over the next couple of months and Bob looks forward to getting out and telling his story of the ride.
