GUEST SPEAKER: Tracey Ukosich Riding Across The Nullabor
John Sinclair introduced Tracey who completed a bicycle ride across the Nullabor and raised over $30,000 for MS. She received a warm welcome and thanked the Rotary Club of Yea for their support which raised over one third of the total.
She went on to talk about the ride, the towns and places she visited with Dee Wilson as her support and the growth of their friendship. Tracey also spoke about the hardships endured by herself and others and the dangers of cycling on a main route across Australia.
After the ride she worked as a Loco assistant for the sugar trains and now wants to become a Loco driver.
When asked what was she most proud of after having completed the event, Tracey said it was the challenging of herself in the most difficult times and tasks.
The Vote of Thanks was given by Sue Carpenter
