Cyclists Raise $AU194,000 to Fight Poverty
More than $AU194,000 ($US173,280) was raised by 90 riders who took part in the 25,000 Spins Great Ocean Road Ride in February.
The money raised by the three-day ride from Geelong to Warnambool will go to support the work of the Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA) and three other charities.
Fifty riders took part on behalf of ADRA, raising $AU106,000 ($US94,679).
New Zealand will play host to its first 25,000 Spins event from March 9 to 11. The money raised from the Queenstown Challenge will help support families in the Tay Ninh Province of Vietnam—one of the poorest regions in Asia.
