AS HIS beloved granddad succumbed to brain cancer earlier this year, Tamworth’s Justin Bradbury succumbed to feelings of grief and anger.
“I was just hating on the world and one night, I just said to myself, ‘okay, it’s time to do something about it’,” Mr Bradbury said.
Out of the darkness, Cruising for Cancer was born. In a few short weeks, the event has grown from an idea to
a juggernaut, already attracting 150 entrants and more than 2000 Facebook likes.
To be held on Saturday, July 26 at Jack Woolaston Oval, Cruising for Cancer will include a show ‘n’ shine, live music, barbecue, continuous raffle and attractions for kids.
Mr Bradbury is hoping it will raise more than $10,000 for the NSW Cancer Council and become an annual event.
Seven different car and motorcycle clubs will display their magnificent mobiles at the event, which is being billed as a family fun day.
Earlier on the day, entrants will go on a round-trip “cruise” from Tamworth and driving through Wallabadah, Quirindi, Gunnedah and back to Tamworth.
Entry is $30 and includes a sticker and lunch.
To enter your car in the show, or participate in the cruise, contact Mr Bradbury on 0429 580 447 or visit the Cruising for Cancer Facebook page at www.facebook.com/cruising4cancer
