Hill’s Heroes are a team of passionate people riding across South Australia, including Kingston SE, to raise awareness and money for beyondblue.
The group will be stopping at the Kingston Football Club on Monday, October 9.
Among those tackling the ride will be retired WNBL and Olympic basketballer Jo Hill, a former Kingston resident, Miss Australia Universe Olivia Rogers, as well as a committed group of everyday men and women.
Both high-profile riders will be talking about their personal battles with mental illness along the way.
There are 13 registered riders who will be supported by a team of people ensuring safety and ultimate success in the ride.
The group will travel 850km from Mount Gambier to Gawler, over seven days, from October 9 to 15.
The aim is not only to raise much-needed funds but to also raise awareness of beyondblue and to get the message out to as many people as possible.
Hill’s Heroes was originally formed to do a bike ride from Barooga NSW to Adelaide in July 2015, and it was not only successful in fundraising, but also in terms of getting the message out there to people with depression and anxiety.
The journey raised $40,000.
