Rotary Club of Victor Harbor President Mark Cox and the whole cycle team receive a warm welcome on stage from the District Governor at the District 9520 Conference in Broken Hill – April 2019.

The Rotary District 9520 Conference Committee donated the proceeds from this year’s Broken Hill District Conference ($5000) to our O2O Bike Ride LTL campaign. This now takes the total raised for research into mental health to a staggering –

Many thanks to Kim Harvey and her committee for this wonderful gesture.  It reinforces the magnitude of the support we received from Kim and Paul throughout the campaign.
