CLIENTS, employees and friends of the Mulleraterong Centre will once again be taking part in the annual ‘Murray to Moyne’.
Starting in Mildura this Saturday, participating teams will cycle a distance of 520 kilometres over 24 hours to raise money for their nominated health service or hospital.
Finishing in Port Fairy on Sunday afternoon, around 100 teams from Victoria, New South Wales and South Australia will be involved in the team relay cycle event.
Now in its 28th year, The Murray to Moyne was originally started by Graham Woodrup in 1987.
The event began after Woodrup’s wife challenged him and other local identities to ride from the Murray River in Mildura to the Moyne River in Port Fairy, raising money for the Port Fairy Hospital.
Initially raising $10,000 in 1987, the event now raises around $1.3 million for organisations riding on behalf of their designated health services and hospitals.
