About

The Rise Above CANCER CONVOY is an annual event to raise money and awareness for Rise Above – Capital Region Cancer Relief. Every year hundreds of Trucks and Motorbikes take the journey from Beard Industrial Estate just outside of Queanbeyan and drive through Canberra to Exhibition Park where the family carnival and concert wrap up the CONVOY.

The CONVOY was started many years ago my Marty Haynes, after a short break it started again in 2013 when Scotty & Nige got right behind the CONVOY and it’s roared into life ever since. In 2017 the Capital Radio Network became our major radio sponsors with 2CC and 2CA getting behind the event.

CANCER CONVOY is our biggest fundraiser and allows us to financially assist over 400 patients battling cancer in our region.
