Timboon Cruisers pushing the paddles again for good health

The Murray to Moyne Cycling Relay is on this weekend and Timboon Cruisers are again pushing those pedals to raise important funds for Timboon and District Healthcare Service (TDHS) as they have done for at least the last 27 years.

This Relay had a humble beginning when in 1987, Hester Woodrup and a team of Port Fairy women challenged her husband, Graham ‘Woody’ Woodrup, the Port Fairy Apex Club and another team of local identities to ride in relay from the Murray River in Mildura to the Moyne River in Port Fairy. The very first ride, which would raise money for the Port Fairy Hospital, started at 2pm on Saturday afternoon and with riding through the night, was completed within 24 hours. Right from the first ride, Woody saw the potential for the event and his dynamic personality and enthusiasm in those early years established the M2M and enabled it to grow into the huge event it has become today

The Timboon Cruisers start in Echuca on 6th April and ride an impressive total distance of 520 km to Port Fairy. The riders pay for all their own accommodation, food, and fuel to ensure that they raise as much money as possible for TDHS.

TDHS is extremely grateful to the Timboon Cruisers for their amazing fundraising efforts over all these years and we would like to thank all the riders, support crew, sponsors, and other contributors for raising funds for our healthcare service. We are proud to be part of a community that is very closely connected and engaged to continue to work together for a healthy community.

MAY THE WIND BE AT YOUR BACK AND THE SUN UPON YOUR FACE ALL THE WAY!
