After a small hiatus, Tattersalls is taking on the Zoo2Zoo in 2022 (right now in fact!).
Tattersalls’ team and Members have overcome various obstacles in past years of this challenge including snow blizzards and bushfires, and now they need your help to raise much-needed funds for the Black Dog Institute.
Unfortunately, we had to take a short break from organizing this event in 2020 and 2021 due to the pandemic restrictions. But Zoo2Zoo is another great thing that this glorious year has brought back.
Our Members John Edstein, Mike Hanrahan, Kieran Horth, Andre Giroux Jon Michel and Paul Hunter, along with the guest riders Mandy Smith, Greg Ball and Chris Chapman have embarked on this epic challenge today morning.
The participating Members are accompanied by the injured Damian Tancred, Malcolm Turnbull, and Jared Patria from the Tattersalls team for support and encouragement.
The team will head off on a four-day stage ride from Taronga Zoo Mosman to Western Plains Zoo Dubbo, where the riders will cover nearly 130 km and some serious climbing over the four-day period.
The riders will traverse the blue mountains as part of this ride, circumnavigating the central west and central tablelands before ultimately finishing the challenge at Dubbo’s Western Plain Zoo.
The aim of this challenge is to raise awareness and funds for the Black dog Institute, a not-for-profit, educational, research, a clinical and community-oriented facility offering specialist expertise in depression and bipolar disorder.
You would be pleased to know that in the previous two years that Tattersalls has participated in this event, the Club was able to raise a grand total of $34,000 for donation and was recognised by the Institute for this contribution.
Awareness and fundraising for this cause is going well again this year, but there is always room for more. So click here if you or someone you know would like to donate to this amazing cause and provide support to such a profound organisation.
Stay tuned for this year’s Zoo2Zoo experience and Member stories in the upcoming week’s newsletter.
