REGARDLESS OF POSTCODE, ALL QUEENSLANDERS DESERVE CRITICAL HEALTH SERVICES AT THEIR DOORSTEP.
Living in a capital city or regional centre means easy access to your doctor and in turn, a specialist, not so simple if you live in rural or isolated Queensland.
For those living in these communities, a trip to the nearest doctor or specialist could be many hours away, a long road trip and/or a flight into the closet city.
On top of the vast distance to travel is the worry and stress of leaving your property and livelihood and all of this added to the fact that you are unwell in the first instance.
Girls Got Heart (GGH) organises multi-day cycling events to raise funds to help change the access of critical health services to these isolated communities – to give them what people living in the city have at their fingertips.
GGH supports the program of Dr. Rolf Gomes and his initiative Heart of Australia and the Heart Trucks.
JOIN US ON THE RIDE TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE
The GGH annual event, ‘Ride with Heart 2019’ will cover 750km over five continuous days. A team of 40 like-minded women wanting to do something bigger than themselves will leave Brisbane on 12th August 2019, riding on the glorious roads of outback Queensland, completing a five-day challenge that will make a real difference to people living in these isolated communities.
We will ride into these rural communities, immersing ourselves in the spirit of people who face these logistical problems every day. We aim to let them know we are listening to their needs and doing something to help change the situation with the benefit of creating connections and friendships along the way.
