2017 Wings Over Illawarra Airshow

Two Blokes partnered with SWCCF to host several families going through cancer treatment for a fun weekend of aerial action and fundraising. Plenty of volunteers were also on hand to collect donation, sell raffle tickets and raise awareness of our vision of 100% survival for ALL children diagnosed with cancer.

2016 Melbourne International Motorcycle Expo

Two Blokes spent the weekend selling raffle tickets at the Melbourne International Motorcycle Expo for the Honda CBR1000rr raffle bike. They were also lucky enough to witness the drawing of the bike and the lucky winner being notified of their fantastic prize. All proceeds going again to the Steven Walter Children’s Cancer Foundation.

2016 Snowy Ride

As ambassadors of the Steven Walter Children’s Cancer Foundation, Two Blokes are very proud to have played a role in what is an incredible week for some extra special people. While the major fundraising event is the Snowy Ride another very special event is taking place, The Snowy Hydro Family Program. A group of families with kids on cancer treatment are whisked away to the Snowy Mountains for the four days while the Snowy Ride is taking place. Two Blokes work as carers for the weekend and bring ‘Steve’ the rally BMW along for the ride as well which the kids and their families all love. Another successful weekend with a group of families and volunteers returning home with very special memories. 

2016 Bungendore Car Club Show

Two Blokes and our major supporter the Lake George Hotel and The George Bar and Dining hosted Steven Walter Children’s Cancer Foundation and their beautiful raffle bike the Honda CBR1000rr donated by Honda at the Bungendore Car Club show.

2016 Mystery Box Rally

Two Blokes signed up again in 2016  for the Mystery Box Rally which was our first event back in 2013! This year we doubled our team including two more two blokes! with Two Blokes Too! What an adventure had by all and raising over $8000 for the Cancer Council Australia in what was an awesome “Adventure for funD” travelling through remote parts of outback Australia. 

2016 Wings Over Illawarra Airshow

As keen aviation buffs and Two Blokes Matt Marais our very own aerobatic pilot it’s no wonder we find a good excuse to hang out at Airshows and we are really lucky to have the support of Mark and Kerry from Wings Over Illawarra. Over 20,000 people came through the gates over the weekend at Wings Over Illawarra Air Show where the Two Blokes were collecting donations for SWCCF. Paul Bennet Airshows, pictured here sailing through the blue sky above the SWCCF Fun Bus, were a highlight. 

2016 24hr Mont Mountain Bike Race

A race Two Blokes’ Darren Skuse has been involved with for a number of years now with the “Amped Up” Team, putting a bunch of amputees (and some 2 legged imposters) up against some of the toughest and gruelling single track in Australia for 24hrs! A great weekend had by all and proudly supported by Two Blokes Major Supporter’s Össur, Lake George Hotel and The George Bar and Dining, and Momentum Sports and Rehabilitation Services. 

2016 Steven Walter Children’s Cancer Foundation Try Club

Two Blokes’ Darren Skuse cracked out the goggles, dusted off the pushie and runners for another year of the Sprint Series Triathlon. A great bunch of people banding together to show what can be done with a bit of training and hard yakka all in the name of raising awareness for kids cancer research through the Steven Walter Children’s Cancer Foundation. 

2016 Alpine Motorbike Tour

What a great way to spend four days riding through the Alpine region of Australia. Run and organised by the Cooma Crew who took care of all the details so Two Blokes could just ride and enjoy the roads and scenery and of course at the same time raising money for the Steven Walter Children’s Cancer Foundation.
