  • Tuesday, April 9 - West Wyalong to Lake Cargelligo
Riding for country kids.

Riding for country kids.

Building on its 95 years of support from rural and remote communities in NSW, Royal Far West's 63 committed cyclists will visit schools on the route, meeting children and families who are currently supported by the charity, and also catching up with local alumni, friends and supporters.

Royal Far West would like everyone to come out and say hello at the various stops along the way.

To find out where the riders will be and at what time, visit www.royalfarwest.org.au/ride-2019 for details.

The riders have set a fundraising target of $500,000, and every dollar raised from the ride will go towards Royal Far West's health, education and disability services to support the children and their families in rural and remote communities who cannot access services locally.

You can donate to this great cause at http://rideforcountrykids2019.gofundraise.com.au/ 

In addition to raising funds, Royal Far West will host a series of free NDIS information sessions for families in need of support for children aged two to 12 years living with autism, developmental delay or intellectual disability.

The evenings will take place on April 6 in Albury, April 7 in Wagga Wagga, April 8 in West Wyalong and April 9 in Lake Cargelligo.

To find out more, parents and carers are invited to contact Fiona Phipps on 0422 411 613 or email windmill@royalfarwest.org.au
