Red Sky Ride
March 3-6 2021
Riders volunteer to cycle 600 kilometres over four days through the South West, challenging their physical and emotional strength, whilst raising essential funds for Solaris Cancer Care.
The Red Sky Ride offers a chance for participants to push themselves to achieve the extraordinary for those currently going through cancer treatment, for families and friends and for loved ones lost.
Cancer will affect one in two Australians by the age 85. However, cancer is a disease that not only affects the physical and emotional health of an individual; it touches their family and friends and can remain in their lives for many years. In 2017, we celebrate the ten-year anniversary of the ride, a decade of making a difference to Western Australians living with cancer.
The Red Sky Ride has made an incredible impact on the cancer community: contributing to the establishment of three additional Solaris Cancer Care Centres, improving access to support services for regional and rural patients and providing over 50,000 free treatments.
The fellowship of the ride provides opportunities to connect with like-minded individuals who want to lead and inspire others to make a difference in the community. Participants aim to promote the importance of quality of life and integrated healthcare while raising awareness of available support services across the state.
Professional training and education are provided to riders to maintain and develop their own health and fitness levels along with an increased awareness of rider safety. In addition, a dedicated group of volunteers provide on-route assistance, ensuring the wellbeing of all participants.
Managed in WA, all monies raised through the Red Sky Ride directly benefit the community, providing emotional and physical support to all cancer patients and families through Solaris Cancer Care.
Solaris Cancer Care is Australia’s leader in integrative cancer care, providing a helping hand to overcome the complexities of living with cancer. The cancer support centres provide access to quality resources and services to assist with the emotional and physical effects of cancer diagnosis, treatment, recovery and palliative care.
The Red Sky Ride is fundamental in ensuring Solaris Cancer Care continue and increase the delivery of vital cancer support services within the medical community.
