Bikers in battle against cancer

MOTORBIKES roaring down the highway will be a cause for celebration next week on the annual Bumz On Bikes day.

Last year more than 400 bikes took part in the ride, which begins at the Riverside Parklands.

Bike enthusiasts from around the region will strap on their boots and helmets for the good cause on October 18.

Cancer Council volunteer Diane Moller was part of the team organising the ride and hopes the event will raise awareness within the community.

“With the ride we try to create an awareness of breast cancer within the community, but it is more than that, most people already know about breast cancer but we want them to take the next step and have a mammogram and make people aware of their bodies,” she said.

“The ride is a great event, the people who participate are wonderful people, it's a privilege to be part of the event and meet these great people.”

All money raised goes to the Cancer Council Queensland, for breast cancer research.

“Most women take time to visit the hairdresser every few months to get a haircut, all we are asking is for half an hour every two years for a mammogram, it could save a life,” Mrs Moller said.

For more information or to register, telephone Noddy Groundstroem on 4152 7723 or 0428 527 726.
