Look out for emergency services pedalling through region

MORE than 50 riders will make their way through the South Burnett led by fire trucks in aid of children suffering from burns injuries.

Riders from the Queensland Police Service, Queensland Fire and Emergency Service and Queensland Ambulance Service left on their journey today, and will ride 650 kilometres from Bundaberg to the Brisbane Children's Hospital, where they will arrive next Tuesday.

The annual Bike 4 Burns will include stops in Goomeri and Nanango, and residents are encouraged to look out for the crew, say hello, and make a donation to the cause.

Donations can also be made online.

Funds raised from the emergency services ride will fund new medical equipment and research through the Children's Hospital Foundation, to help kids throughout Queensland and New South Wales.

Last year more then 1300 children presented at hospital with burn injuries.
