Opera2Parliament 2013: Sydney to Canberra Lymphoma Bike Ride

Michael Cohen and Roy Cohen from The Gold Company are participating in the Opera2Parliament 3-day bike ride in support of Meiron Lees’s fundraising drive for Lymphoma awareness.
Now in its third edition the Opera2Parliament bike ride is on track to raise funds for creating awareness and support for Lymphoma – the fifth most common cancer in Australia. What started as a ride with 17 cyclists who raised $28,000 in May 2011, grew to a crew of 45 cyclists in 2012 with a fundraising total of more than $40,000. The 2013 Opera2Parliament Lymphoma bike ride promises to be bigger and stronger.

The Opera2Parliament bike ride begins at the Sydney Opera House on 13th September 2013, and ends at the Parliament House in Canberra on 15th September, which marks the World Lymphoma Awareness Day. That’s three gruelling days spanning 330kms with pit stops at Mittagong and Goulburn.
“When I was ill I remember thinking that one day when I’m better and have the strength I will train and participate in this ride to help others better cope with this very challenging disease called Lymphoma. With your support we can make a difference by not only helping patients through their illness but also to support research in finding a cure,” says  Meiron on his Opera2Parliament fundraising page.Lymphoma-Opera_gofundraise-734x204(3)
