JUNGLE RIDE 2017 | Northern Queensland PHN's Jenny, Linda and Carolyn recently participated in the Jungle Ride 2017 and completed a phenomenal 90km ride to raise money for charity!

All proceeds went towards KIND Inc which is a local charity raising money for local families to help children who are suffering from serious illnesses or injuries. This wonderful organisation helps to provide financial support for their medical and other needs, particularly assisting with the costs of travelling away from home to Brisbane and elsewhere for treatments/surgeries.

They also bumped into Stuart O'Grady, who was the ambassador for the ride! 🚲

Great work ladies!
