Cyclists raise $50,000 for wheelchair kids

Express Data’s Ross Cochrane joined 20 other cyclists on a recent ride to raise funds for the John Maclean Foundation.

The charity provides financial assistance for young Australians that use wheelchairs. The Kilometres for Kids (K4K) bike ride saw the cyclists cover 450km over three days from Sydney to the Hunter Valley, raising $50,000.

Riders presented new wheelchairs and financial assistance to recipients at their stopover in Cessnock.

“The average household income of the families we support is around $25,000 per year, so you can imagine the difference a $5000 grant or equivalent in essential equipment makes for them,” Cochrane said. “Whether the child experiences cerebral palsy or paraplegia, they are first and foremost children and all children deserve to dream, laugh and live as we did and our very own children do.”
