Local legend/all-round-good-bloke, Wayne Armitage, is about to hit the road again for his third Ride for Sick Kids. With a few marathons under his belt, Wayne is more than prepared to take on the 1000km trail. Over seven days, Wayne and a team of keen cyclists will make the journey from Broken Hill, New South Wales to Adelaide, South Australia stopping at Mildura, Renmark, Waikerie, Barossa and Mawson Lakes. Together they hope to raise $250,000 for Ronald McDonald House Charities.
Wayne has already raised an impressive $25,000 over the past three years and hopes to raise another $10,000 this year. If you’d like to donate to Ronald McDonald House Charities Ride for Sick Kids through Wayne, click through to his Everyday Hero funding page here.
Wayne says “As a paramedic, I see all kinds of sick kids so I understand first-hand the toll it puts on a family. I just want to be able to help families reduce the stress and burden of long term hospitalisation.”
Wayne’s partner, Brent Matthews will be joining him for the first time as a two-day rider.
