Long-time friend of ARA and AFL legend, David Parkin, is also patron of the oh-so-aptly named Male Bag Foundation (MBF).
The MBF is a dedicated band of weekend warriors who raise funds for prostate cancer research and treatment, primarily by riding those iconic red Honda Postie bikes around the countryside.
This year’s ride saw 18 blokes (including our intrepid leader, Alan Rimmer) ride over 2,000 kilometres in eight days – travelling around rural Victoria and NSW, supported by a hardy team of volunteers.
To date, the Foundation has raised over $1,000,000 to fund research, resources and equipment for the detection and treatment of cancer and care for sufferers. It’s a point of great pride in the Foundation that participants in these rides pay their own way – bikes, accommodation, food and fuel - so that funds raised go entirely to this worthy cause.
