For the first time ever and after months of rigorous training, a group of McDonald’s owner/operators, suppliers and business partners set upon a mammoth five hundred kilometre bike ride down the New England Highway of Northern NSW in August 2005, to help fundraise for Ronald McDonald House Newcastle.

The goal was to raise $50,000 to help finance the facilitation of 6 self-contained units at Ronald McDonald House Newcastle, but amazingly, the ride raised over $85.000 and helped open the unit early in 2006!

 After the success in 2005, the Hadley Cycles Ride for Sick Kids became an annual event.
