Last week the mountain biking community from around Australia and the world converged onto the mecca of Western Australian Mountain Biking, Margeret River, to take part in the annual Cape to Cape mountain bike race.
As part of this event, BikeDr put together a charity team to raise money and awareness of Dismantle and our programs for at-risk young people and young people with mental health challenges - BikeRescue and BikeTherapy.
The Dismantle Team are extremely proud and grateful for the work the BikeDr Charity Team has done in raising crucial funds which we will be used in a number of ways. We would like to thank the following Charity Team Members for their effort and commitment: Peter Morris, Mark Tupalski, Gerald Hayes, James Eldridge, Sandy Carlton, Justin Millar, and Matthew Jones. Between all these wonderful people the team raised over $12,000.
Not only did BikeDr provide a charity team, they worked hard washing bikes, servicing and providing merchandise for the riders and other community members that were at the race, including some rad socks they sold out like hotcakes!
Brynn Ward, a BikeDr mechanic heading up bike washing told the Dismantle Team, his team washed over two thousand bikes over the 4 days of the event.
From all of us at Dismantle we are forever grateful for the efforts and commitments from BikeDr and the BikeDr Charity Team!
