Ride for Country Kids
Giving hope to country kids, families and communities
Every year children and their families from rural and remote areas of NSW come to Royal Far West’s Centre for Country Kids for essential health and developmental care. To show our support for these communities which are facing significant hardship, this May 80+ cyclists visited the towns of Dubbo, Narromine, Nyngan, Warren and Cobar on our annual Ride for Country Kids.
Now in its sixth year, Royal Far West’s Ride for Country Kids has already raised more than $2.5m to support kids and families.
This year’s 450km ride wound from Dubbo to Cobar, a route rich in Royal Far West history, as these communities have trusted us to support their children for close to a century.
The ride coming to town is a breath of fresh air for many children and families who are doing it tough, helping to lift their spirits as we show we care. Our riders are greeted with delight as they stop at various schools and communities, with many locals happy to share their special connection with Royal Far West.
It’s also a financial boost for these communities, as we buy from and support local businesses and organisations as much as we can.
