Commissioner Karl O’Callaghan APM will lead a contingent of motorcyclists across Australia from Joondalup to Canberra in a bid to raise money for specialist equipment for WA’s Princess Margaret Hospital Oncology Ward.
Police from all jurisdictions are invited to participate in the inaugural Wall-to-Wall Ride for Remembrance this September, in which a contingent of motorcyclists will ride from their own police remembrance walls to the National Police Remembrance Wall in Canberra.
Commissioner O’Callaghan has devoted the ride to raising funds for equipment which will help Princess Margaret Hospital conduct medulloblastoma research, potentially saving the lives of many young WA cancer patients, including the daughter of a serving WA Police officer.
Any WA Police employee can take part in this once-in-a-lifetime ride in their own time, with their own motorcycles. Each participant will aim to raise $5000 in sponsorship for the ride and Commissioner O’Callaghan hopes the contingent will reach a combined fund-raising target of $100,000.
