The Burleigh Heads Scout Group in Queensland was proud to support Victorian Scout Leader Jay Coady from the 1st Bennettswood Scout Group on his 2500 km Tour de Coast bike ride from Brisbane to Melbourne to raise funds for the Peter MacCallum Cancer Foundation.  In advance of Jay’s visit on 1 April, the Burleigh Heads Scouts held a fundraising wheelathon and barbeque, which raised $1332 for cancer research.  The Scouts and their leaders raced around the track on bikes, scooters, skateboards, a unicycles and a billycart, with prizes for most creative vehicles, best costumes and most funds raised.
