Crawford will set out on the Tour de Crawf from Melbourne on June 20 as part of a 3600km bike ride across the Nullabor to Perth, where he is scheduled to arrive on July 11.

The ride aims to raise funds and awareness for Breast Cancer Network Australia following his successful 760km walk from Adelaide to Melbourne in 2010, which raised $600,000 for BCNA.

Crawford is scheduled to arrive in Mildura on June 22. He will spend the night in the region following a family-fun day event on the Saturday afternoon at the Mildura Rowing Club lawns.

Event organiser and BCNA member Shirley O’Brien has encouraged the community to get behind the event.

“We’ll have live music, jumping castles, merry-go-rounds, sausage sizzles, hot and cold drinks, face painting and hair colouring,” she said.

“There will be prizes given for the craziest pink outfits and the best ‘Welcome Crawf’ banners.

“We’ll also have a raffle and first prize will be a table for 10 at The Footy Show, second will be a GIANT push bike and third will be a voucher from Focus on Furniture.”

As a measure of Crawford’s ride, he will ride further than the cyclists in the Tour de France in fewer days.

‘LIFE-CHANGING EXPERIENCE’: Shane Crawford will visit Mildura as part of Tour de Crawf later this month.

More than $150,000 has already been raised through corporate sponsorship for the ride.

Crawford, who played 305 games for Hawthorn from 1993- 2008, said in a statement the bike ride would be a life-changing experience.

“But the pain and agony I will go through riding 3600km in 22 days and crossing the Nullabor is nothing compared to the pain Australian women battling breast cancer go through each day,” he said.
