Residents from the NSW North Coast and South East Queensland will come together to participate in a social cycling event to raise awareness for organ and tissue donation this Sunday.
The Cycle for Life caters to all levels of fitness and participants can choose to participate in the 100km or 50km cycle, or even opt for a family cycle or walk.
Donation Specialist Nurse for the NSW Organ & Tissue Donation
Service, Howard Clare says the Cycle for Life is not a race. ‘It’s a fun day out for the family, and a great opportunity to bring the community together in support of a very important subject.’
Registering is easy
Registering for Cycle for Life is easy – it only takes one minute at donatelife.gov.au or just three taps in your Medicare app.
Joining the Australian Organ Donor Register gives hope to the 1,750 Australians and their families that are currently waiting for a life-saving or life-changing organ or tissue transplant.
‘Registration is important because it leaves families in no doubt of their loved one’s decision to be an organ and tissue donor,’ said Mr Clare.’
DonateLife Week runs from Sunday 24 July to Sunday 31 July 2022, and is the national awareness week for organ and tissue donation.
The Cycle for Life is on this Sunday starting at Salt Village Green, Kingscliff. The 100km cycle starts at 7.30am, the 50 km cycle starts at 8.30am and the family cycle and walkers start at 9.30am
