Razor Ride 2017
Starting in the Docklands, Melbourne on Monday 20th November 2017 the 2017 Razor Ride is a 6 day, 770km+ bicycle ride through Victoria’s most iconic cycling locations.
The Razor Ride
The Razor Ride is a marquee fund raising event delivered by the Chamberlain Foundation to raise awareness and financially support the important work of GriefLine.
The success of this year’s ride is in no small part due the support of our ride partners Bendigo Bank Communities, GIANT, AIA Vitality, Tineli and the IA Foundation.
Chamberlain Foundation co-founder Ray Chamberlain’s personal commitment to this cause was born from his own experiences and exposure to Mental Illness in its various guises. Over the last four years, in particular, too many people close to him have fallen foul of the effects of Mental Illness.
