In April Motorolans again took part in the Murray to Moyne bike ride, raising $2,973 for Darebin Community Health (DCH).
Motorola Solutions’ Andrew Somers, Shane Grigg and Chris Van der Velden participated, along with various friends and partners, with logistical support by Proposal Specialist Jenny Morelli.
In 2016 the team rode to raise money for the Royal Children’s Hospital Good Friday Appeal. In 2017, digital two-way radios provided by Motorola Solutions again helped with ride communications. Read the case study from last year’s event to see this system is utilised during the event.
The annual Murray to Moyne ride began in 1987 and raises funds for hospitals and health services. From raising $10,000 in 1987, an estimated $1.3m was raised in 2011 when 1,204 riders representing 150 organisations rode on behalf of hospitals and health services throughout Victoria, NSW and South Australia.
Darebin Community Health (DCH) provides high quality, culturally appropriate and accessible health services, group programs and access to co-located services for people living, working or studying in Darebin. The service provide priority access to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders, newly arrived refugees and asylum seekers, children under 12 years old and their families, people living with a disability or chronic and complex conditions, those at homeless or at risk of homelessness and the socioeconomically disadvantaged.
