LIVE 2 RIDE is an initiative created by family friends of little Zane who was involved in a tragic accident. The Urasli family are raising public awareness and funds for organ donation at Westmead Children’s Hospital. Zane’s family generously donated his organs to help others, as a result 4 children and 1 adult have a better chance at life.
LIVE 2 RIDE is a positive community initiative, meeting at Sydney Olympic Park’s P5 car park, from 8.30am-10.30am, on Sunday the 10th of December 2017.
LIVE 2 RIDE aims to raise funds at the car park entry and through a selection of raffle tickets. The raffle provides the opportunity to win incredible prizes for the car and motorcycle enthusiast as well as raising funds for a great cause. All participating vehicles and motorcycles from the community will cruise to Black Beach Reserve Kiama, in honour of little Zane.
Zane’s father says: “We lost our son Zane suddenly to a very tragic accident. Zane’s loss of life went on to save 5 other lives through the organ donation process. We want people to know out of death, sometimes there can be happiness for other families via organ donation.”
As LIVE 2 RIDE community partners, Waterview In Bicentennial Park is committed to making a major difference through this tragedy via several initiatives supporting the event. This includes assistance with the start site together with the Sydney Olympic Park Authority who have donated all fees to P5 car park C between 8.30am-11am.
Waterview’s Managing Director Theodore Drivas says: “As a family business, we were eager to participate in the Zane Campaign, a great initiative to honour Zane and raise awareness and funds for organ donation.”
Other community partners also include the Flash Couriers, NO 1 Plumbing and Drainage, Entourage Service Sydney, Clarity Detailing Sydney, Auto Wrapz, iWebHost and Forza Performance Coatings. Zane’s family have also initiated the online Go Fund Me page https://www.gofundme.com/the-zane-campaign to raise money for the Westmead Children’s Hospital. Their initial goal was $15k and through the generosity of the community they have raised over $60k to date. The family aim to raise $100k with the LIVE 2 RIDE event for the kids of Westmead Children’s Hospital and to create greater public awareness about the importance of organ donation.
LIVE 2 RIDE commences from Sydney Olympic Park P5 car park C to Kiama, Black Beach Reserve on Sunday 10th December. Families are encouraged to attend the event in the hopes of honouring Zane and raising awareness and funds for organ donation. Initial estimates are around 200-300 vehicles/motorcycles travelling from Sydney Olympic Park to Black Beach Reserve, Kiama. Together we can make a difference.
