Do you love cycling!! Then come and join Maccabi Cycling Club for a 50 km ride in Melbourne to support Israel’s Rambam Hospital’s research into sudden cardiac arrest. You will be joining the Ambassador of Israel who is also riding to help raise funds for this amazing cause.

On the 4th of November at 8 am, the ride will be kicked off by both local member David Southwick and Ambassador Sofer. We are starting and finishing the 50 km ride at the Maccabi Offices in Caulfield.  The ride has been designed by the Maccabi Cycling Club and will take backroads, through wetlands and a number of bridges. The pace will be moderate and if you can cycle 50kms join in!

Brunch and a talk from the Ambassador of Israel, Mark Sofer who is a passionate supporter of the RAMBAM HOSPITAL in Israel will happen on our return of the ride.

Ambassador Sofer said “Rambam is one of the great hospitals of Israel and serving two million residents, it provides healthcare for almost a quarter of Israel’s population. Indeed, its centrality in the wellbeing of our society is almost unsurpassed. As the largest hospital in the north of Israel, it has a unique responsibility at times of heightened security tension in the region and in recent years and given its proximity to the human tragedy of the Syrian civil war, its importance has grown exponentially.”

“On a personal note, I have a special affinity to Rambam, as two of my grandchildren were born there! I’m truly glad to be able to make a contribution to this wonderful medical institution.”

The ride is free, but we request that you make donations to the Rambam hospital – a most important medical resource providing cutting-edge cardiovascular care on Northern Israel’s northern front.

Rambam Health Care Campus has always fostered a multidisciplinary approach toward patient care. This is particularly critical for cardiovascular diseases. Funds raised will help heart patients to benefit from having all clinical and surgical treatments and healthy living programs—including patient counselling and rehabilitation—under one roof—the Eyal Ofer Heart Hospital.

There will also be dedicated space for research and education. By placing opportunities for ongoing professional development, hands-on clinical research, and full-service patient care in one central facility—cardiovascular care at Rambam will become a centre of reference for Israel.
