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

15th September, which marks the World Lymphoma Awareness Day. That’s

patients through their illness but also to support research in finding a
cure,” says Meiron on his Opera2Parliament fundraising page.
Meiron Lees, Roy and Michael Cohen, and Gareth Murray aim to raise
