The MACA Cancer 200, Ride for Research is a 200km journey, raising vital funds for cancer research right here in WA.
Step up on the 15th and 16th October 2022 and help develop kinder treatments and better outcomes for those in your life touched by cancer.
IT'S CANCER'S TURN
to be afraid.
By taking part in the MACA Cancer 200, you’re supporting an amazing group
of researchers dedicated to developing kinder treatments and better outcomes
for the people that matter most in our lives – your family and friends.
As someone living with cancer, it’s important not to let up on this disease.
As someone who has seen family, friends and colleagues pass away from cancer and other diseases that the Perkins research – I am driven to do something in their memory.
I joined the ride as a dare from my boss. I stay with the ride because it’s truly the best weekend of my year.
And that’s not just because of the feeling you get knowing you’re fighting cancer. It’s the camaraderie amongst the riders. It truly feels like one big family reunion.
I ride in memory of my 14-year-old nephew, Hunter.
He was a much-loved member of the family and his local community. Hunter was 11 when my sister, who is an oncology nurse noticed he had swollen glands in his neck. After much testing leukemia was diagnosed.
As someone who enjoys a healthy lifestyle – I felt ripped off.
This year as I pull out the penny once again - this time with my wife by my side and recent prostatectomy - my return to the Ride is a little more personal.
Thank you for being part of a movement to end cancer for good. There are no cancer breakthroughs without medical research and there’s no medical research without you.
After ten years, the Ride has raised over $40M for cancer research. You’ve ensured WA researchers can continue to strive for a cancer free future. Thank you for your support and loyalty.
MACA has been the principal partner for the ride for the past 11 years. Fielding the largest team, MACA is personally responsible for raising over $19.2m for cancer research. They are an organisation that lives their values.
They believe in giving back to the community in which they live and work. Being personally touched by cancer in their workforce, MACA rides for the cause and for a cure.
