Former Australian prime minister Tony Abbott joined the Sydney Adventist Hospital’s team of cyclists riding in the 2017 Bobbin Head Cycle Classic last Sunday.
The challenging event, which included a choice of four rides through scenic Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park and Bobbin Head, raised funds for various local Rotary clubs and Lifeline.
The San cyclists’ team included hospital general manager Brett Goods (captain), Mr Abbott and various San medical, nursing and administrative staff and supporters, including Andrew Featherstone, Samantha Holmes, David Blyth, doctors Saurabh Gupta, Ross Grant and Jim Sullivan, Rita Richter, Chinh Cap Lien, Catherine Bernard, Jade Berg, Jim Crews, Scott Lovell, Stephen Mitchell, Ewan Layton, Chris Starrett, Liz Reynolds, Andrew Reynolds, and Ben Uprichard.
Hospital staff also volunteered at two medical support stations and provided physiotherapy.
The San team raised more than $A1600; the event raised over $A100,000.
