David Flanagan, Director for Interest Rate Markets at Curve Securities, cycled 150km to raise more than $20,000 for Young Diggers Dog Squad – a charity which trains rescue dogs to assist mentally and physically injured and disabled serving and ex-serving Australian Defence Force members.
David and his teammates jumped on their bikes at the Southern Highlands and headed down the coast, past Lake Illawarra and through Wollongong to the notorious Bulli Pass climb, before passing through the Royal National Park and making a triumphant return to Sydney.
The funds raised will be used to train eight companion or assistance dogs, which help serving and ex-serving personnel an their families to cope better with the stresses and difficulties in recovering from an illness of injury.
The dogs are selected and trained by Steve Austin, who is one of Australia’s leading authorities in dog training and has devised a special training method for the ill and injured.
