A pharmacist, a bike, and 4,200kms of open road

LOCAL hero and pharmacist, Ross Cairns, is planning an epic solo ride from Perth to Newcastle in a bid to raise much needed raise funds for Ovarian Cancer Australia. Hailing from Raymond Terrace, NSW, Ross will undertake the grueling 4,200km ride unsupported, carrying all his own food, water and camping equipment, across four states, kicking off on 05 September. So far, he has managed to raise $6,000 from his local community, as well as Chemmart and Symbion Pharmacy Services. If you would like to follow Ross’ progress, he will also be carrying a GPS locator which will broadcast his position (accessible at http://tinyurl.com/TransOz, from 05 September). Donations can be given via the site www.everydayhero.com.au/ ross_cairns, with all of the funds going towards Ovarian Cancer Australia.
