I have started a team in relation to the Ride to Conquer Cancer, that is going to ride over 200km in one weekend from the middle of Melbourne UP into the Yarra Valley and then back again. In order for the 6 members of my team (Muppets on Wheels) to ride, we need to raise $2,500 each. so far we have raised just over $3,500 so we are certainly getting there. The ride takes place on the 27th & 28th October 2012
If possible i would love to see individual branches run a particular fundraising event of their choosing and provide the donations to the team.
We are also looking for a MAJOR sponsor to provide the team with at least a $1000 donation that would enable the riders to get riding gear made up that would advertise that particular business.
Any donations - large or small are greatly welcomed and can be made directly into a bank account, that will given upon request.
We have several events planned to raise funds and details of those can be found on our facebook page, the address is http://www.facebook.com/#!/muppetsonwheels.
The next event is being held on Sunday 24th June 2012 at the Bridge Hotel in Bendigo. for $35 you get 3 hours of beer, house wine, soft drink and nibbles. Confirmed yesterday we also have local band ' Birdhouse' performing. What a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Tickets available at the venue or from me. Just let me know how many you need.
