After the school community was touched by the despair of both cancer and suicide, Weeroona College is gearing up for good causes.
The 24-hour long human powered vehicle event will see students pedaling their hearts out for the Cancer Council and the Suicide Prevention Awareness Network (SPAN).
Tayah McGregor and Bryn Burke said they stretching their muscles ahead of the epic event.
With today marking RUOK Day for suicide prevention, the students wanted to shout out to the Bendigo community for support.
“I've had a lot of family history with mental health problems and it's very important to myself and my family that we make sure everyone's okay, at all time, not just on RUOK Day,” Ms McGregor said.
The event kicks off next Thursday at noon until noon on Friday, September 18.
