ARMADALE MLA, DR TONY BUTI, AND FRIENDS HIT THE ROAD AGAIN IN SUPPORT OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE.
Dr Tony Buti, the founder of the Ride Against Domestic Violence (RADV) believes that this year’s event will be the best ever.
Back in 2016, Dr Buti devised the RADV and co-opted former member for Darling Range, Tony Simpson, to co-organize the first RADV.
The first ride in 2016 had 13 riders, last year there were 16 riders and this year the RADV will have 36 cyclists participating.
The 250km journey commences at Busselton this Saturday morning and concludes at Parliament House on Sunday afternoon.
The ride will stop near seven women’s refuges along the way to hear from staff members and domestic violence survivors.
The 36 cyclists comprises 9 teams coming from the areas of politics, business, unions, community banking and sporting clubs.
Dr Buti said “it was great to have people from different walks of life, who are often in professional conflict with each other, coming together for the purpose of supporting victims of domestic violence.”
Local builder, Robert Shaw of Daly and Shaw will be joining Dr Buti on the ride as he did last year.
The Ride Against Domestic Violence is on May 26 and 27 and aims to raise at least $70,000 for women’s refuges across WA.
