Locals unite for cycle challenge to fight cancer

Edlyn Foodsʼ Windsor Maine and Mary Steed will be cycling for a cause this weekend, taking a small team from Maryborough to Melbourne for the Unite to Fight Cancer fundraiser event.

Seven locals have banded together and will be putting the pedal to the metal this weekend, cycling and walking up to 100 kilometres as they raise money for the fight against cancer.

Headed by Edlyn Foods’ Windsor Maine, the team will be taking part in this Sunday’s Unite to Fight Cancer run, ride and walk fundraiser in Melbourne, which sees participants take on either a 60 or 100 kilometre cycling course or a 21 or seven kilometre run or walk.

The local team of seven, called the Kindness Knook, have already smashed their fundraising goal with just over $6000 already collected, and Mr Maine said it’s been great having a team.

“This is the third time I’ll be doing the ride but this year we got a little team together,” he said.

“We called it the Kindness Knook, which is our way of spreading a little bit of kindness and helping a great cause. Our team has three members from Edlyn Foods along with my partner and a couple of her kids, and a family friend. Some will be riding and some are walking.”
