WA Police Commissioner Karl O’Callaghan APM will lead a contingent of motorcyclists over 4,000kms across Australia from Joondalup to Canberra in a bid to raise money for specialist equipment for WA's Princess Margaret Hospital Oncology Ward.
Police from all jurisdictions are invited to participate in the inaugural Wall-to-Wall Ride for Remembrance this September, in which a contingent of motorcyclists will ride from their own police remembrance walls to the National Police Remembrance Wall in Canberra.
Commissioner O’Callaghan has devoted the ride to raising funds for equipment which will help Princess Margaret Hospital conduct medulloblastoma research, potentially saving the lives of many young WA cancer patients, including the daughter of a serving WA Police officer. Any WA Police employee can take part in this once-in-a-lifetime ride in their own time, with their own motorcycles and cover their own costs such as fuel, repairs and accommodation.
Each participant will aim to raise $5000 in sponsorship for the ride and Commissioner O’Callaghan hopes the contingent will reach a combined fund-raising target of $100,000. 100% of funds raised will be put towards the purchase of a 3D molecular imaging machine for PMH, with none of these funds going towards the ride costs or administrative costs.
Donations to the ride can be made by selecting donating to a riders page above.
Opportunities also exist for corporate partnering and brand positioning through logo placement on motorcycles, media launches and brand links to WA Police and Princess Margaret Hospital.
