Gordon 'Mac' MacDonald Big Bike Ride

Date: 26 - 27 March 2023

Gordon ‘Mac’ MacDonald is an amazing person!

In January 2022, his world was rocked by a Grade 4 terminal brain cancer (glioblastoma) and a 12 – 15 month prognosis. This March, he wants to give back to SCGH by doing a community fundraiser for Charlies Foundation for Research.

He’ll be riding approx 200kms over two days from Bunbury to Perth, all the while raising funds for the Foundation.  He’ll be starting early on Sunday 26th of March in Bunbury, completing the ride in Perth on the 27th and accompanied by a few keen supporters!

You can read more about Mac and his inspiration and donate to this amazing ride using the link and contact details below.
