Successful Murray to Moyne ride

The EGHS Murray to Moyne Cycle Relay team successfully completed the ride over the weekend of April 6-7.

The team rode a new route this year, 520 kilometres from Echuca to Port Fairy. This year the bike trailer was upgraded, and enabled a smoother transition with the loading and unloading of bikes. Thanks to staff member Andy Sanders and long term Murray to Moyne volunteer Graham Bull for their work on the trailer.

This year the team is raising funds towards the purchase of two specialist Hillrom Accella therapy mattresses which prevent and treat pressure injuries in adult patients.

Fundraising hasn’t been finalised as yet, an update will be provided at a later date.

It was great to see a lot of staff involved this year, both on the bikes and as support crew. Thank you to riders Alan Young, Roxane Moos, Dean Knights, Lauchie Stewart and support crew Tania McKinnis, Andy and Loretta Sanders and David Romeril.

The major Murray to Moyne raffle was drawn and the winners are as follows:

1st prize – Fine dining three course dinner for six people at Pyrenees House, with matching wines, valued at $500: Sandra Rusden

2nd prize – $200 voucher from Foster’s Mensland: Jess Tucker
