Today, 56 riders will pass through Cooma as part of the 842km-long Tour de Kids’ farewell tour.
Since its inception 17 years ago, Tour de Kids has raised over $6.5 million for Starlight’s programs, including Captain Starlight.
Arriving in Cooma late afternoon, the cyclists will be staying overnight at the Cooma Motor Lodge.
The farewell tour hopes to raise $750,000, some of which will go towards opening a new Starlight Express Room at the Sydney Children’s Hospital.
