Charity tour to
THE Ronald McDonald House Charities
Ride For Sick Kids SA will pass through
Waikerie during the trip from Mildura to
Adelaide (November 22-28)
Hitting the road for the third year, the
seven-day cycle tour aims to raise much-needed
funds for Ronald McDonald House Charities
programs in SA.
The 1000km-plus ride has become one of the
charity's most significant fundraisers, with
proceeds used to help seriously ill children and
their families across the state.
"The 2012 and 2013 rides raised a combined
total of $310,192 for the house," said Adelaide
House executive officer Jane Scotcher.
"With $118,160 already raised in 2014, we feel
very fortunate to have such dedicated riders
and wonderful community members contribute
and support the work of the house."
The team taking part in this year's event
includes Sam Harper, who has spent many
months in the Adelaide House with his young
"Ronald McDonald House was an incredible
support for me and my family during our jour-
ney," he said.
"Taking part in the ride allows me to give

families like mine."
While on the road, the peloton will stop at
schools and community groups to share the
story and work undertaken by Ronald McDon-
ald House Charities.
Riders will be hosting a series of community
events in regional locations, including a dinner
at the Renmark Hotel on Sunday, November 23.
Riders will travel for seven stages, each
between 114k, and 189km, and take in towns
including Renmark, Waikerie, Clare, Nuriootpa
