As a lot of our members know I am a keen recreational cyclist and over the last few years have participated in a Rotary district group ride raising funds for ROCAN – Rotary Against Ovarian Cancer.  ROCAN is an initiative of the Rotary Club of Williamstown and was established in 2003 to increase community awareness of this deadly disease. Funds raised from the ride will be directed towards supporting research aimed at developing a test to detect ovarian cancer in its early stages and the building of a wellness centre that will provide accommodation for cancer patients and their families as they undergo treatment. 
During the week of March 18th – 24th, I will be riding through North East Victoria via several towns including Wangaratta, Rutherglen, Bright, Beechworth and Albury with a total of 685 kilometres and 5,425 metres of climbing. This year Mark Ellis will join me on the ride with 28 other cyclists and 6 volunteers.  All participants meet their own costs and commit to raising a minimum of $1,000 each. Over previous years and on average the event fundraising is generally between $50,000 and $70,000.
I am seeking your support for this worthwhile cause and appreciate your consideration. All donations are tax deductible and donors will receive a tax invoice/receipt by donating directly to my RoCan 2023 fundraising page.
