The Salvation Army Red Shield Ride: Sydney To Melbourne For A Great Cause

Comments Comments

Imagine the sense of achievement: it’s the end of a scenic multi-day ride, you’ve pushed your body to the limit while raising awareness and funds to support those who need a hand. What a feeling! 

The Salvation Army delivers hope where it’s needed most all over Australia – whether you choose their 10-day endurance challenge or one of the three-day charity rides, you’ll be riding through areas where people have been helped by the Salvos, and you’ll have the opportunity to meet some of them so you can see how your funds might be used.

By combining a great riding experience with raising funds for a great cause, you double your personal challenge … and your feelgood factor.
