HOGs in the pink for an­nual char­ity ride

Cockburn Gazette - - OPINION -

IF by chance you see 300 bikers on the roads look­ing pretty in pink on Oc­to­ber 29, don’t be alarmed; it is for a good cause.

The Swan River Chap­ter of the Har­ley Owner’s Group (HOG) are gear­ing up to par­tic­i­pate in the an­nual Gerda’s Pink Rib­bon Ride.

The ride is named af­ter for­mer mem­ber Gerda Dunkel, who raised money for breast can­cer be­fore she passed away.

Since it be­gan in 2011, they have raised over $50, 000 for the Can­cer Coun­cil and have been the big­gest sole donor to the Pink Rib­bon Ap­peal in WA over the last two years.

Swan River Chap­ter of the HOG di­rec­tor An­drew Sloan said the ride’s high­light was through Fre­man­tle’s cap­puc­cino strip.

The ride leaves from Perth Heat Ball­park in Thorn­lie at 10am and fin­ishes at Ro­ley­stone Coun­try Club at 12pm, where there will be live mu­sic, a raf­fle and a sausage siz­zle.
