Leathers on and wind in their hair, the bikers will take their passengers though steep winding range roads of Cairns. The boisterous convoy are raising funds for Muscular Dystrophy Queensland as part of the first annual Cairns HOG Charity Ride.

“It is a fantastic event that our club is really looking forward to. There are so many of our club members keen to donate their bikes and their time for the day, it’s incredible to see the local community come together to support families living with muscular dystrophy.”

Wayne Leonard – Harley Magic

“Harley Davidson has a long international history of supporting muscular dystrophy charities and we’re excited to begin the tradition here in Cairns.”

Muscular dystrophy is a genetic condition that causes progressive muscle weakness, often resulting in profound physical disability. Muscular Dystrophy Queensland empowers people living with muscular dystrophy and similar neuromuscular conditions to make the most of opportunities and fulfil their potential to live the lives they choose.
