Mawson Trail Epic – Quiz Night
13 April 2019
The Mawson Trail Epic is a 900km off-road bike packing ride along the Mawson trail in South Australia in support of White Ribbon.
The ride has been foundered by South Australian White Ribbon Ambassador Ryan Midgley, who is passionate about ending violence against women, creating sustainable change.
The purpose of the ride is to raise awareness of the issue of violence against women, raise awareness of the work being done by White Ribbon in communities, schools, workplaces and sporting clubs, and to highlight the services and support available to victims. The goal is to raise $10,000 to support this important work to create an environment where women feel safe and free from violence and abuse.
The ride will start on the 2nd May 2019 leaving Adelaide in Victoria Square, riding to Blinman in the Flinders Ranges in the north of South Australia. The total distance is 900km on off-road trails climbing just under 10,000 meters. The ride is unsupported so riders will be carrying everything including a tent and sleeping gear.
May is Domestic Violence Prevention Month, and the 2nd May is national day of remembrance of women and children who have lost their lives to domestic violence. Sadly, last year 68 women in Australia were Killed as a direct result of violence perpetrated by a man, a statistic that must change.
Individuals can support the ride by donating online https://www.gofundme/mawson-trail-epic.com in addition I am also looking to engage businesses as corporate sponsors so if you are interested in becoming a corporate sponsor please email me MawsonTrailEpic@gmail.com.
I am currently in training for the ride and have completed over 4000km so far, and am riding 300km per week.
This will be an epic ride for a really important cause and I look forward to keeping you updated and watching the donations come in over the next few month, and thankyou in advance for your generosity for my cause, and for the thousands of women who are victims of domestic violence, it means a lot to make a difference.
