Every minute, every hour, every day.
One person is diagnosed with cancer every 18 minutes in Queensland. Sadly, all of us know someone who is affected.
The Cruise for Cancer is a great community event that has been held for the past 20 years where everyone has a day of fun, laughter, good company, no cares or worries and 100 + roaring Harleys!! Organised by Darling Downs Harley Owners Group (HOG) and Rotary Club Toowoomba City, Harley-Davidson riders come together to give the community the chance to experience the thrill and freedom of riding pillion on the back of these magnificent machines while raising funds for such a worthy cause. Each year the Darling Downs HOG design a ride to take in the spectacular views of the local area with a morning tea of mostly home cooked delights along with country hospitality before returning to Toowoomba where Rotary Club Toowoomba City have cooked up a BBQ burger for lunch. Pillions receive a commemorative souvenir and there is a Supporters Bus for the less adventurous to join in on the fun.
Our goal is to raise $10000.00 to sponsor a room at Cancer Council Queensland’s Olive McMahon Lodge, Toowoomba. The Olive McMahon Lodge provides vital access to life saving cancer treatment to regional Queenslander’s by providing an independent living facility that is a home away from home for those who need to travel, at no cost to the patient. Funds raised over the $10000.00 benefit the Cancer Council Queensland’s vital Cancer, Research, Patient Support and Prevention and Early Detection programs.
We would like to thank our sponsors for their support and encourage everyone to support these businesses.
