Paramedics pedal into Port Dou­glas on a mis­sion

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

YES­TER­DAY Kirk Bin­ning­ton and four fel­low Queens­land Am­bu­lance Ser­vice of­fi­cers ped­alled their way from Cairns to Port Dou­glas on the open­ing day of a “Tour of the Trop­ics”.

The 570km char­ity ride is rais­ing money for QAS Legacy — an or­gan­i­sa­tion sup­port­ing fam­i­lies who have suf­fered the loss of an am­bu­lance worker.

The rid­ers, who also in­clude Mis­sion Beach para­medic Adrian House, will wind their way up the Rex Range to the Table­lands to­day and com­plete a cir­cuit back to Cairns next Tues­day. Mr Bin­ning­ton said he hoped it would be­come an an­nual event.
