The Claremont Rotary Club and Make-a-Wish will be launching their major fund raising event the Le Tour de Norfy Challenge Monday 15th October at 2pm. The launch is being hosted by the Hobart Fire Station in Argyle street.
Craig Stringer, Public Relations spokesperson for Claremont Rotary Club said “We are pleased to announce that Tim Mckay, a senior firefighter, will be launching this year’s event. Tim has a passion for bike riding and helping others in the community. Tim and a team of firefighters are currently training to complete the Headin’ South for a Cure ride, a 2,500km ride from Brisbane to Hobart to raise funds for cancer research.”
Mr McKay said “As part of our preparation for Headin’ South for a Cure my team and I have to spend quite a bit of time in the saddle. We see participation in Le Tour de Norfy as a great opportunity to get some k’s into our legs whilst also supporting fantastic two organisations in Claremont Rotary and Make-a-Wish”
Mr Stringer said “the event is a safe, enjoyable ride for people of all abilities, promoting physical fitness while allowing riders to enjoy the wonderful scenery the Derwent Valley has to offer”
Mr Stringer said “The Tour de Norfy is on Sunday 28th October, starting and finishing at Kensington Park New Norfolk. Registration is now open at www.claremontrotary.org.au/Derwent.”
