The first ever local Black Dog Ride One Dayer was held in the district on Sunday, March 20 with 75 riders coming together to support the cause.
The riders left Young in the morning on a 186km round trip that passed through a number of towns including Boorowa.
Organiser and coordinator Tex Quigg was amazed at all of the support that he received from local businesses as well as the community as a whole.
"I would like to thank everyone that come along to young's first Black Dog Ride One Dayer," he said.
"At the end of the day we had 75 registered riders and 18 pillion riders. What an outstanding roll up for our first 1Dayer.
"Just on a rough count on cash with raffles and ride registration merchandise in cash we made $3229.35, then we have online sales and registration to go on top.
