Goldfields Outback 2 Ocean Bike Ride
Twelve of our very own Rotary Club of Esperance members proudly supported Goldfields Outback 2 Ocean Bike Ride last week. The bike ride has raised $57,000 this year for WA Police Legacy, a charity supporting families of deceased or incapacitated police officers. Thirteen dedicated cyclists pedalled nearly 400km from Kalgoorlie to Esperance, supported by a fantastic crew of approximately 30 individuals, including our own Club members. We extend our heartfelt thanks to the riders, support crew, donors, and all involved in making this event a tremendous success. Your generosity and dedication truly make a difference in our community.
