Katanning Rotarians support “Ride to Conquer Cancer”

Rotarian Carol Garstone succumbed to cancer after leading a healthy and active life and being an active member serving her community.

Two years ago her husband Ian decided to enter the Ride to Conquer Cancer to help in the fight against the disease that took Carol too soon.

On Saturday, October 21, four other Woodanilling people, the Woodyites, joined Ian and 850 other wonderful people at McCallum Park in the City of Perth to ride 100 kms to Mandurah and 100 kms back.

The Woodyites team consisted of Bradley, Stuart and Ian Garstone, Marieka Wilson and Josh Kippin.

Between them they raised $13,250 to go to the Ride to Conquer Cancer and Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research.

The participants of this year’s ride, all 855 of them, collectively raised 4.1 million dollars to go to this charity.

Ian said that they had a great ride in lovely weather and Josh and Marieka did very well for their first time participating in the ride.

The whole event is very well organised with lots of great volunteer helpers.

On the Saturday night Professor Leadman gave a speech outlining where and how all the money that had been raised would be used and said that they were continuing to make great progress in their research.

Ian said that they have all signed up for next year and, if anyone else would like to join them on their ride, you are very welcome to contact him for more information.

He wanted to thank everyone who supported them with donations and support, especially the members of the Rotary Club of Katanning who donated $10,000 to the team.
