When friends are in need, it’s good to know there will be others who will step up and provide relief and assistance. This was recently illustrated by the Colac Motorcycle Club in Victoria. The group not only enjoys engaging in motorcycle sports, but also goes to great lengths to take care of each other.
The Colac Motorcycle Club is one of the many motorcycle clubs in Victoria. According to the club’s site, the Colac Motorcycle Club is made up of about 250 members across Victoria who gladly welcome junior and senior riders. The club meets each month and also participates in several motorcycle events throughout the year. The club is also widely supported throughout the community by many local businesses.
Recently, the group held a fundraiser, which Lisa Rogerson, secretary of the Colac Motorcycle Club, described as a “personal event.” According to Rogerson, the club’s fundraiser was created in order “[t]o help a terminally ill friend and club member.”
The club was successful in getting the word out about the event through word of mouth, but the fundraiser itself was difficult to get off the ground, according to Rogerson. The main hiccup revolved around getting help with running the fundraiser. “It was very stressful and frustrating trying to get a club [or] organization to help that is declared and authorized to run a raffle with the gaming commission, but the got there in the end,” she said.
Thankfully, Victoria’s Geelong Motocross Club turned out to be the assistance the Colac Motorcycle Club was looking for. With their help, the Colac Motorcycle Club were able to go forward with their fundraiser and did achieve their goal of helping their friend in need.
Needless to say, the fundraiser was a success. Rogerson said she was glad to see the love people showed toward their clubmember and friend. “The kindness of people…was very emotional for our friend with cancer,” she said.
Dealing with life’s challenges can certainly be tough, but if you have friends like the members of the Colac Motorcycle Club, you can be sure you will be surrounded by supporting and caring individuals.
