Big Jim needs a hand

Big Jim is well known and widely loved amongst West Aussie Black Dog Riders. Joining the family of Black Dog Riders in 2015 Big Jim recently completed the Top End 2018 ride, proudly volunteering as 1 of 2 Tail End Charlies on the 4,500km journey, solidifying our love for this gentle giant. 
On Thursday 6th Sept Big Jim's wife of over 23 years, Michelle, passed away unexpectedly. Exacerbating the devastating grief he and his family feels, Big Jim is also dealing with financial pressures as a casual worker and father of 5, with the funeral of his wife to fund.
Big Jim has a big heart and has given freely to our big family over the years, and now his Black Dog Ride family have an opportunity to help our mate out in his time of need. Put some cash in the hat and your contribution will help Big Jim cover the funeral expenses of his wife and give him a little financial security in the difficult weeks ahead.
