In March, Hunter United got on board the Newcastle Pink Ribbon Ride (NPRR) for a series of fundraising events to raise awareness and much needed funds for Breast Cancer research and support groups in the Newcastle and Hunter region.

Originally started by the Just Girls Motorcycle Group in 2004, in 2010, they handed the reins over to Ride Around The Block, who after many years of successful fundraising passed it over to the Crowe/Freeman family.

Of Hunter United’s sponsorship, spokesperson for the NPRR, Cathro Freeman said,

“I can't thank Hunter United enough for helping to raise awareness of our fund raising activities and for their continued support of the Hunter Breast Cancer Foundation. They didn’t hesitate when approached and within 24 hours we had a fundraising account and a generous donation.”

“This is a cause that is very dear to me as I lost my mother to Breast Cancer and to know that so many people are suffering out there with a disease that is still killing woman at an alarming rate is unbearable.”

The ultimate goal of the NPRR is to make a difference for the past, present & future generations of sufferers, survivors, the gone but not forgotten, the families and the friends of one of the world’s most insidious diseases.

A series of fundraising events are held throughout the year by NPRR with the major event culminating in a 140km ride from Hexham to Denman on Saturday 8th October, 2016.

All funds raised are kept in the local region through the good work done by the Hunter Breast Cancer Foundation.
