Riders saddle up for Black Dog Run
GREAT CAUSE: Biggenden paramedic Jol Clark (third from left) was amazed at the turn out for Sunday's run to raise awareness of depression and suicide. THIRTY motorcycle riders were expected in the Black Dog Run at Bundaberg, but the event attracted 70 riders to raise awareness about depression and suicide.
Organiser and Biggenden paramedic Jol Clark was ecstatic.
Mr Clark said he only had three weeks to organise the event.
“I am just over the moon at the support,” he said.
“There were 6500 nationally riding and I am aiming at doubling the numbers for the Bundaberg event for next year. I will be presenting Lifeline Bundaberg with the proceeds, which we hope will be around $2500.”
Mr Clark said he was happy to combine his love of motorbike riding with raising funds to combat depression.
The ride started at Buss Park before heading to Gin Gin via Apple Tree Creek before lunch at South Kolan and back to Bundaberg.
