Locals revved up for cancer convoy

Each April thousands of trucks and motorbikes gather just outside Canberra.

The vehicles travel from Queanbeyan, through Canberra to Exhibition Park in Canberra to raise money for cancer sufferers throughout the region.

This year, it included around 14 riders from Braidwood and Majors Creek.

Richard Pierce organised the local riders this year.

“I think we’ve all had somebody touched with cancer at some stage, I lost my mum to cancer,” says Mr Pierce. 

“It’s a great way of getting people together and riding, and at the same time raise some money for a good cause.”

The event helps over 900 patients facing cancer each year.
