The Steven Walter Foundation’s annual Snowy Ride is only a couple of months away and promises to be another huge event. Our big ride around Australia finishes in Thredbo on Friday the 5th of November just in time for the Snowy Ride. Online registrations are now open and cost $60 per person, which includes a National Parks & Wildlife Service entry to the Kosciuszko National Park and an automatic entry into the draw for a Honda VFR1200 valued at $25,000 which has been donated by Honda Australia. There are also opportunities to win further minor prizes by completing any three checkpoints on Saturday the 6th of November.
Now a word of warning, if you haven’t got your accommodation tee’d up for Thredbo yet then you better get your skates on as the small village books out fast. There are other alternatives such as nearby Jindabyne or camping so there are a few options.
The Steven Walter Foundation, which is the organiser and main benefactor of the Snowy Ride, is a non-profit organisation which was started following the passing of nineteen year old Steven Walter after an eight year battle with cancer. The Foundation is involved in raising money for research into childhood cancer and the side effects of cancer treatment in children. All monies raised by the Foundation goes to childhood cancer research programs and suport of children with cancer.
