In 2006 twelve friends set out to cycle from Taronga Zoo to the Western Plains Zoo with the simple goal of raising enough money to secure Dubbo a spot on the Charity Edition of Monopoly. Arriving in Dubbo after 420km over three days of cycling, with Dubbo securely on the Monopoly board, the Zoo2Zoo was born.
Not wanting to let a good thing go, the challenge has grown each year with the riders in 2007 raising over $37,000 to purchase vital medical equipment for the Dubbo Base Hospital. In 2008 the Zoo2Zoo went on to raise over $50,000 for the endangered Tasmanian Devils held at Western Plains Zoo. In 2009 the Zoo2Zoo raised in excess of $30,000 for the Black Dog Institute, a not-for-profit, educational, research, clinical and community-oriented facility offering specialist expertise in depression and bipolar disorder. In 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015 we again rode for the Black Dog Institute, raising over $900,000 throughout this time for the great work they do in their field.
Many thanks for your interest in doing one of the Zoo2Zoo rides in 2017. There will be six (6) rides next year:
Melbourne 2 Canberra: Saturday 4th March - Wednesday 8th March 2017; Canberra 2 Dubbo: Friday 10 March - Sunday 12 March 2017; Canberra 2 Mogo (MTB): Saturday 9 - Sunday 10 September 2017; Sydney 2 Dubbo: Friday 13 October - Sunday 15 October 2017
In 2017 it is expected that each participant attempt to raise awareness and funds for the great work the Black Dog Institute does in helping people with depression, BiPolar and other mental illnesses.
