The Snowy Ride is a motorcycle event run annually in the Alpine Region of NSW and the ride is now in it’s fifth year. The first four years attracted almost 8000 riders and has raised almost eight hundred thousand dollars for the “Steven Walter Fund”. The “Steven Walter Fund”, which is the organiser and main benefactor of the Snowy Ride, is a non-profit organisation which was started following the passing of nineteen year old Steven Walter after an eight year battle with cancer. The Fund is involved in raising money for research into childhood cancer and the side effects of cancer treatment in children. All monies raised by the Fund go directly to “The Children's Cancer Institute Australia” and all funds are directed into research. The aim of the Snowy Ride was to involve the motorcycle riders of Australia into raising money for research into childhood cancer and it’s side effects and to give the local volunteer organisations of the Snowy mountains area the chance to raise money for their own communities.
