Murray to Moyne

Congratulations to the 2018 team for raising $52,000 as part of their ride!

'Murray to Moyne' is a cycle event like now other. Cycling in relay fashion over a 520 km course, the team experiences the beauty of Victoria in the most unique way possible.

Held annually in April, the relay course goes from Echuca to Port Fairy and the Children’s Cancer Foundation has entered a team every year for the past 21 years to raise money for child cancer research and we are looking for passionate individuals to join us. The 2018 ‘Cytotoxic Cyclists’ team consisted of 20 cyclists and 10 support crew. The team is made up of staff, patients and families from The Royal Children’s Hospital and Monash Children’s Hospital, plus their friends.
