Red Shield Ride

Red Shield Ride

In May this year 25 riders took part in the Red Shield Ride, riding 1,400km from Sydney to Melbourne to raise crucial funds for this year’s Red Shield Appeal. It was a gruelling 10 day ride that raised over $243,000.

Throughout the journey, our riders got to meet inspirational guest speakers who shared how their lives had been transformed through the work of The Salvation Army.

Jennifer, a successful lawyer, took part in the ride and raised over $13,000. She says she took part to “help make a difference to people in our community who are struggling”.

It is a cause close to her heart.  Jennifer says “I owe much of where I am today to the Salvation Army. As a child, I remember on a number of occasions food shopping with my mother on food coupons. There simply wasn’t enough money in our household for food.

“I remember the excitement and joy I felt when we went shopping with our coupons. It was like Christmas morning but better. So now, over thirty years later, it is time that I give back.”

They Call me Shuffles

    A diagnosis with Parkinson's changes a lot of things: Motor function, non-motor functions, but maybe even more powerful is the changes in social interactions. I personally don't mind being called "Shuffles" now, I did at first (8 or so years ago I think), I...
