On Monday the 13th of May the CareFlight Base to Base Cycle Challenge will see a group of 35 elite cyclists, athletes, celebrities and CEOs take the challenge of riding 250kms from the Toowoomba CareFlight Base to the Metricon Stadium on the Gold Coast.
Each of the riders have set up their own fundraising page with the mission to raise much needed funds for CareFlight. They will be supported by their friends, families and colleagues as they ride to save lives.
With each mission costing in excess of $12,500 please give your support by donating today. Click the tab 'sponsor a friend' and search for your rider.
Thanks to all the riders and sponsors involved in this ride - together we will save lives.
