FOR SOME the idea of a 700km ride through flood waters and rough terrain on a motorbike destined for the scrapheap is madness, for Tony Woods it was an adventure.
Mr Woods went on the Scrapheap Adventure Ride to raise funds for Down Syndrome NSW with his team Molly Moo, named after his niece, Molly.
“Our team was called Molly Moo, and that’s because my niece, she had down syndrome and she passed away at the age of four with leukemia, we did it in memory of her,” he said.
“Poor Molly, when she was in the kids hospital she used to play the Wiggles on video non-stop, how it didn’t drive the nurses mad is beyond me.”
In it’s seventh year the event raised $95,000, $5000 of that was raised by team Molly Moo.
