Ride for Relief 2019
be part of our annual charity cycling & bathing event
After the successful delivery of our first charity cycling event, Ride for Relief, which raised over $18,000 last year, Peninsula Hot Springs is again committing to support those Australians experiencing mental illness.
Our riders will meet at Peninsula Hot Springs to take off on a spectacular scenic ride around Mornington Peninsula. There are two courses to choose from – 51km or 106km. This professionally arranged and fully supported ride will be assisted by Connect Sport Australia and includes lead riders, a bike mechanic and first aid specialist. The ride will finish at Peninsula Hot Springs, where participants will enjoy a healthy set lunch and then unwind, relax and recover by bathing in our natural geothermal mineral-rich waters.
The funds raised from this event will go to our charity partner Mentis Assist, a not-for-profit mental health support service that provides specialised mental health services for people (and their carers) living with a diagnosed mental illness in and outside of Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula. Mentis Assist will use these funds to promote accessible mental health and physical wellbeing opportunities that work to build strong and resilient individuals and communities.
The point of difference
Ride for Relief is unique in that it is a boutique event that allows a maximum of only 57 participants. This creates an intimate team environment in which mental health can be discussed and personal stories can be shared throughout the day.
