The 2019 Variety Moto Run, sponsored by Adelaide Brighton Cement, included 61 entrants, 15 bikes, 17 luxury cars, an SA Care Bus and of course the Helistar Chopper for the event’s 12th year. Raising an impressive $338,000 (net) for SA kids in need, this result is the second highest in event history.
Departing Adelaide Harley Davidson Bike Works on Thursday 17 October, entrants enjoyed the four day, 1,446km journey traveling through the Riverland and Barossa before finishing at the Glynde Hotel on Sunday 20 October.
Aside from the incredible scenery, there were many highlights including the Safari Theme Night, the opportunity to travel by helicopter and view the beautiful scenery from an aerial perspective, amazing entertainment by brad Blaze, Meta4 and The Geezers, unique experiences at the Woolshed Brewery, 23rd St Distillery and Barossa Discovery Parks. There was no greater highlight than the multiple opportunities for entrants to see their fundraising efforts first hand, with a range of education, health and mobility equipment provided to local schools and organisations along the route totaling more than $78,000.
Thank you to the event’s sponsors: Adelaide Brighton Cement (Platinum), Helistar and SA Care and Aussiefast Transport Solutions (Gold), Beatwave and Terry Howe Printing (Silver). We can’t wait to hit the road again next year!
