John Rafferty, C.ex Group CEO recently participated in Royal Far West’s Ride for Country Kids for the second consecutive year. This year John, along with other C.ex Group team members Cameron Wendt, Rouan Lerm, Craig Madsen and Scott Nolan rode from Riverina major city, Wagga Wagga to Orange in central NSW – a gruelling 420km! The funds raised by the ride go towards ensuring country kids have access to the same healthcare as city kids. The C.ex Group team raised an incredible $36,371.00. Funds raised go directly to the work of Royal Far West caring for country children by providing essential medical services that are not accessible to many children in Australia. Royal Far West’s operating costs are covered by other channels, ensuring that all funds raised through the Ride for Country Kids goes directly to getting country kids the best possible healthcare.
