Taking the cancer war on road

VOLUNTEERS and supporters from Emerald and around the Central Highlands will hit the open road with Cancer Council Queensland in a 5000km motorcycle ride to celebrate 50 years in the fight against cancer this weekend.

Cancer Council Queensland staff will join local branch members and volunteers from Barcaldine today, and local supporters from Emerald tomorrow, to thank them for their continued support.

The ride is part of a 10-day tour of South East and Central Queensland, which departed from Southport on Monday.

Cancer Council Queensland spokesperson and cancer survivor, Megan Dwyer, said riders from across Central Queensland would join the Cancer Council Riders as they travelled around the state.

"We're taking our fight against cancer on the road and visiting towns that connect us with the community," she said.

To join the ride you can email ccriders@cancerqld.org.au, visit www.ccriders.org.au or call Megan on 0427 158 620.
