Two Rotary members rode 1000km across the South West to raise more than $17,000 for Solaris Cancer Care and Lift the Lid on Mental Health.

Tony Critchley and Dave Castro left from Bunbury on June 7 and made their way to Busselton, Margaret River, Manjimup, Albany, Arthur River, Darkan and then back down to Collie.

The pair tracked a day ahead of their 14 day schedule and arrived in Bunbury on Wednesday, June 20. 

Mr Critchley rode 1000kms for his daughter Sonya who was diagnosed with breast cancer last year, for members of the Rotary club who have been diagnosed with cancer and those volunteers who provide the pre and after care for cancer patients. 

Mr Castro also rode alongside Mr Critchley for his family and friends who suffer from mental health issues and cancer.
