Policeman Wayne takes challenge for charity

Western Australia Police Force’s Sergeant Wayne Byram is determined to beat both the 125-kilometre cross-country mountain bike race known as SEVEN and the fundraising target he has set himself in support of the Police Legacy fund.

Sergeant Byram (pictured) said the bike ride was designed to be challenging, being made up of seven sectors and including 3,400 metres of elevation — that means 54.7 kilometres of uphill riding.

He is to join close to 1,000 other entrants as they take on the hills around Nannup, Bridgetown and Donnybrook on 15 May.

In addition to the personal challenge of completing the race, Sergeant Byram has another important motivation.

“I’ve attended three WA Police Legacy Camps and seen first-hand some of the incredible work being done there,” he said.

“I’m passionate about the organisation and have been doing what I can in recent years to support the ongoing care being provided to families who have experienced the loss of a police officer.”

The Police Sergeant said he had started a GoFundMe online page and would be grateful for any donations towards his goal of raising $3,000 from the ride.

“If I can surpass that figure even better; please join me in making a difference by supporting my fundraising for WA Police Legacy,” Sergeant Byram said.
