There is still time to donate if you'd like to help us reach our fundraising goals 🙂

The “Kalamunda Bushies” are now two days into the Gibb River Challenge and hopefully having a good rest this evening with a few hundred KM’s under the belt. While we won’t have mobile data signal with them again till the end of the ride, we are receiving daily GPS check-in updates from the team.
The pictures below are from Sunday morning (at 5 am) on the start line and are of the Riding Team and the Support team and vehicles.

Prescribed burning is essential in protecting the community from the threat of intense summer bushfires. Parks and Wildlife has achieved 238,000 hectares of prescribed burning since July, our best outcome in 29 years.
The "Kalamunda Bushies" are ready to hit the road in the next 24 hours for the 660km long Gibb Challenge which is a socially competitive team relay event along the Gibb River road from Derby to El Questro in the Kimberley heartland of Western Australia.
The ride is to raise funds for The Royal Flying Doctor Service Western Australia (RFDS) and for our nominated charity the Breast Cancer Research Centre-WA.
We're almost there but if you have a few spare dollars to give, please help us reach our goal by donating to these very worthwhile causes.
