South Western Times - - News -

AN epic 1011km jour­ney span­ning across the South West, Lower South West and Great South­ern re­gions has seen in­com­ing South Bun­bury Ro­tary Club pres­i­dent Tony Critch­ley and his cy­cling part­ner Dave Castro raise al­most $17,000 for char­ity.

Mr Critch­ley said half the money raised would be do­nated to So­laris Can­cer Care, a ser­vice close to his heart af­ter his daugh­ter’s can­cer di­ag­no­sis, while the re­main­ing money would help the Aus­tralian Ro­tary Health’s “Lift the Lid on Men­tal Ill­ness” fundraiser.

The 13-day trek saw the pair as­cend more than 5km over a to­tal cy­cle time of about 50 hours.
