Whitsunday Times - - CHILL. -

TICK­ETS are still avail­able for this month’s Pedal for a Pur­pose fundraiser, as part of lo­cal women Shona Rus­sell and Janelle East­wood’s Tour De Cure ef­forts.

Ms Rus­sell and Ms East­wood have both been se­lected to ride with the Sig­na­ture Group for this year’s Tour De Dure, a 1194km bike ride from Ade­laide to Mel­bourne, which helps raise funds for can­cer re- search, sup­port and pre­ven­tion projects.

To take part each mem­ber must com­mit $12,000, and the girls are hop­ing Pedal for Pur­pose goes a long way to­ward achiev­ing that goal. The event will take place at Wa­ter­line on Shin­g­ley on Satur­day, March 28 from 7pm.

Tick­ets for the event are $80 and avail­able at Paya, Whit­sun­day Ocean Ser­vices, Re­ward Dis­tri­bu­tion.
