The Ride for Resilience event is a major fundraiser for Active Farmers charity. 

The organisation provides fitness classes, mental health services and health workshops in farming communities and aims to foster social interaction, build community connections and resilience.

We currently have a network of over 30 group fitness classes, run by a team of 26 personal trainers that extends through almost every state of Australia and we hope to expand to 70 communities by 2020.

We need help to achieve that, and we are asking riders to raise $1,500 each to donate towards the costs of running the fitness classes and growing the network.

Active Farmers is a registered Not For Profit (NFP) health promotion charity with Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) status
