Banish the Black Dog has now finished
18 May 2013 - 19 May 2013
The Rotary Club of Townsville Central had the vision for the club to target mental health issues and support healthier minds, bodies and communities through the Banish the Black Dog Charity Bike Ride.
The inaugural Banish the Black Dog Charity Bike Ride ride was held in 2009 with 85 riders raising over $22,000. Since then the number of riders has grown to 115 and has raised over $180,000 for the research of mental health issues.
We have also provided support for local mental health organisations. In 2013 we hope to boost that total even further.
