New to Canberra, I love exploring this city and the secrets that it holds with my family.
Cheer on the trucks, before watching Mental As Anything
The Rise Above Cancer Convoy (formerly "Convoy for Cancer") is an annual event to raise money and awareness for Rise Above – Capital Region Cancer Relief. This year the event will be held on Sunday, 8th April. Hundreds of trucks and motorbikes leave Beard Industrial Estate in Queanbeyan at 10am and drive through the streets of Canberra, tooting their horns and waving to the crowds along the way. Their route will begin at Beard Estate and travel via Canberra Avenue, Hindmarsh Drive, the Monaro Highway, Parkes Way and Glenloch Interchange, then north to Sandford Street and finishing at the EPIC.
Ensure you follow the trucks to Exhibition Park to enjoy the family fun day between 12pm - 4pm and see "Mental As Anything" perform live on stage! See the Rise Above Cancer Convoy website for all the details.
