Bike 4 Burns 2017

Bike 4 Burns is a charity bike ride that raises funds to further life-changing research into childhood burns, something very close to the hearts of firefighters and emergency services staff. 

Because scars don’t stretch and grow with the skin, a child who has a burns injury can have to endure up to 50 operations before they reach adulthood. From 8 - 13 June 2017, a dedicated group of firefighters are volunteering their time to cycle 560kms to ensure that our amazing scientists can continue the search for the best treatment and scar prevention for kids with burns injuries.

This year's ride will have the cyclists starting in Townsville and finishing in Cairns but they certainly won’t be taking the easy route, they’re taking the ‘long way ‘round’ via Ingham, Tully, Millaa Millaa, Mareeba and Port Douglas.

Over 6 days, the Bike 4 Burns cyclists will again be pushing themselves up some steep terrain and challenging roads but their challenge will soon be over, for little patients suffering from burns it is a very different story with many facing a long and often painful road to recovery. 

You can help by donating today. Every dollar will help fund research in an effort to discover the best possible care for childhood burns. 

Thank you so much for your support, without you the search for better treatments would falter.
