NSW VB Blues legends Brad Fittler and Nathan Hindmarsh have begun their week long Blues Hogs for Homeless charity ride to raise money for Father Chris Riley’s Youth off the Streets organisation from Sydney’s Allianz Stadium.
The ride will take them from Nowra in the south, to Tamworth in the north west and onto Tweed Heads with the journey culminating in a ride around Allianz Stadium at half time of the Sydney Roosters and South Sydney Rabbitohs match on 7 March.
A host of corporate partners have joined Fittler and Hindmarsh in pledging their support to the ride with Harley-Davidson generously donating a custom 883 Harley-Davidson Hog and Caltex also supporting the ride through donating petrol to riders.
“Companies like Harley-Davidson, the Sony Foundation and Caltex have been terrific with their support in the short time we have had to put this together,” Blues Hogs for Homeless rider Brad Fittler said.
“The whole concept snow-balled from me just wanting to do a ride to spread the Origin word and rally New South Wales behind Laurie and the Blues this year.
“We will be conducting clinics in most of our stops and I encourage people to get behind the cause and donate.
“I am really looking forward to getting on the road and I want to remind people that they can join the ride if they make a donation to our charity.”
Tickets in the raffle for the Harley-Davidson Hog will be available for sale on the road and also via the web at www.blueshogsforhomeless.com.au
