An exciting event began on the 1st of September of this year, when former Brumbies Coach Andy Friend and his wife Kerri began their 5000km journey from Cooktown to Canberra to raise awareness and money for Acquired Brain Injury.
The FRIENDly Ride is a three month Mountain Bike challenge for Andy and Kerri, who want to support a cause close to both their hearts after Kerri acquired a Brain Injury in an accident while Mountain Biking just 12 months ago. They are donating all sponsorship funds raised to Brain Injury Australia, and also The Outward Bound Foundation to run outdoor programs for participants with an Acquired Brain Injury.
This ride has been designed not only to test Andy’s physical and mental endurance on the bike, but also to assist Kerri with her recovery as she supports Andy all the way by being a part of the back up team.
There are many ways you too can support The FRIENDly Ride. Become one of the ride’s major sponsors and have your branding advertised on our support vehicle (while it is being driven from Cooktown to Canberra). Another sponsorship option provides your business with weekly feature advertising on the official website. You can also support by sponsoring to join Andy and ride with him on the final three days of the journey. Or simply by donating directly to Brain Injury Australia or Outward Bound by following the link’s on the website.
So come on …… be a part of this amazing journey!
