Taking place at the famous Wonthaggi motocross circuit, the two-day event began with a Saturday coaching clinic for 20 kids affected by cancer, and run by KTM-backed coach Glenn McDonald.

Sunday's KTM Ride 4 Kids was a volunteer-run Open Practice session, which saw approximately 130 riders roll up for the privilege of turning a few laps on the famous dirt. They also got the chance to meet hard-core throttle twisters such as Price, Carter and Matt Talty-Hopkins, have a chat, and get an autograph.

KTM Australia came to the party in no uncertain terms, giving away not one but two brand-new KTM 85 SX models, one of which was awarded to the highest fundraiser, Sam Pruscino, who raised $4466.55.

The second went into a draw containing the names of all fundraisers who had raised more than $300, and the raffle winner was Charlie Moller, who badly damaged his ‰Û÷non-orange‰Ûª bike when he crashed out of the Aussie titles recently, but now has a brand new KTM85SX to race next season.

The event raised approximately $33,000, from both entries and prior fund-raising of which 100% goes towards vital support programs for children or young adolescents undergoing treatment for cancer and cancer-related illness.

Sunday's haul brings the total funds raised by KTM Ride 4 Kids since its inception 13 years ago to approximately $600,000.

Event Organiser Matt Manning was pleased with the weekend, ‰ÛÏIt was a good turnout, everyone had a good time and fund raising-wise he was a sensational effort from everyone involved. There were some regular attendees that I have seen for the last 5-6 years so we have a good following.‰Û
