The Perth to Margaret River Prostate Cancer Awareness Cycle will begin on Friday, September 13, with all proceeds being donated to the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia (PCFA). The main objective of the ride is to make people more mindful of the devastating disease.
September is international Prostate Cancer Awareness month, and because 20,000 Australian men are diagnosed with prostate cancer every year, the disease is a pertinent issue. Men are encouraged to be proactive when it comes to screening – early detection saves lives.
The event's patron, Kim Ledger (father of late actor Heath Ledger) will be travelling with the cyclists all weekend. The riders' friends, family and many spectators are expected to welcome the cyclists in Bunbury.
Bunbury rentals might be made available to supporters and riders looking to stay the night.
Festivities are to take place in Bunbury the afternoon of Friday the 13th, including a Big Aussie Barbie. The Big Aussie Barbie campaign will be taking place over the entire month of September, and all Australians are encouraged to register and host a BBQ to raise funds for and awareness of prostate cancer.
Real estate in Bunbury might just see a boost from fans and riders who fall in love with its charm during their brief foray in the city, which ends in Margaret River on Sunday, September 14th.
