Banish The Black Dog Charity Bike Ride 2015 has now finished
23 May 2015 - 24 May 2015
The Rotary Club of Townsville Central had the vision for the club to target mental health issues and supporthealthier minds, bodies and communities through the Banish the Black Dog Charity Bike Ride.
The inaugural Banish the Black Dog Charity Bike Ride was held in 2009 with 85 riders raising over $22,000. Since then the number of riders has grown to over 120 and has raised over $302,000 for the research of mental health issues. We have also provided support for local mental health organisations. In 2015 we hope to boost that total even further.
