The Banish the Black Dog Charity Bike Ride is a relaxed cycling tour promoted by the Rotary Club of Townsville Central to raise awareness of mental health issues in our community, and to raise funds to aid research into the causes and treatments of mental health disorders. The rides major donation recipient is Australian Rotary Health, the largest non-government mental health research funding organisation in Australia. We also support local initiatives in the treatment and support of those suffering mental illnesses.
The Townsville Central Rotary Club had the vision to target mental
health issues and support healthier minds, bodies and communities
through the Banish the Black Dog Charity Bike Ride. The inaugural ride
was held in 2009 and received magnificent support with 85 riders. The
number of riders has grown over the years and a substantial amount of money has been raised for
research into mental health issues and to support local mental health
