Andy & Craig’s Amazing Race Calls on Community to Support Local Cancer Fundraiser
  09 May 2024

This year, Andy and Craig return to Hidden Valley on their trusty stretcher to support a great cause, and now they’re calling on St John NT staff and the community to get involved to raise money for the Alan Walker Cancer Care Centre.

The Ride Against Cancer aims to raise funds directly for our Northern Territory Alan Walker Cancer Care Centre, a community friendly event where parents, family's individuals and teams can come down for one day of the year to the Hidden Valley Raceway and complete one or sixty-six laps on the track.

The event was instigated by a Motorsports NT member Mr Clive Baxter who wanted to contribute back to the Alan Walker Cancer Care Centre that helped him and his late wife Chantal during some very difficult times. The 66 laps for Chantal is an endeavour to complete 66 laps overall, in memory of Chantal who passed away at age 66 and for those family and friends who have passed away from cancer.

Once again in 2024, Motorsports NT and the Alan Walker Cancer Care Centre are working together to create this event and enabling the community to be able to directly donate and raise funding for those family or friends who may need support and treatment at the Alan Walker Cancer Care Centre.

Clive Baxter said that the support St John NT offered in 2023 had been fantastic. “St John NT do a tremendous job with not a lot of thanks, so to have them be part of our event again, I feel honoured.” he said.

“The interest generated last year with St John NT paramedics, volunteers and staff pushing a stretcher around the 2.8km Race Track all helped to create a great day.”   

Don’t worry, it doesn’t have to be a stretcher! Ride a pushbike, walk, run, skate, push a pram or enter in a wheelchair, basically anything on wheels that is (mostly) human powered!

Hidden Valley Raceway is approximately three kilometres long, so we advise attendees to bring plenty of water, sunscreen and a hat and take advantage of the opportunity to get around the Hidden Valley circuit, all while donating to a great cause.
