Support this epic journey across Australia for children living in poverty

Ride for Compassion sees cyclists and support crew take to the road to help raise money for vulnerable children living in poverty.

What is Coast to Coast?

The ride will be a one-month, 4,000km journey from Perth to Newcastle in September/October where cyclists ride from the beautiful beaches of Western Australia, across the rugged Nullarbor, to the bustling east coast city of Newcastle.

Each cyclist undertakes extensive training before the event, pays for their on-road costs, and raises funds for the work of Compassion.

How can you help?

You can help by sponsoring a child or donating to help meet the urgent needs of Compassion assisted children who are facing unthinkable hardships. This can include those affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, children whose parents have left, died, or unable to provide for them, children exposed to exploitation and children with special needs.

Will you be part of making an incredible impact?
