Beyond Bitumen

Beyond Bitumen

A cruise for a cause

There is nothing quite like hitting the open road with a classic playlist, snacks and some of your closest friends and family. But what if your road trip could save lives?

After losing their daughter, Beth, to suicide in 2005, Peter and Trish Fehon created the charity car event – Beyond Bitumen.

Over four days, a team of driving enthusiasts took on the New South Wales central west region, cruising in a mix of old cars and modern 4WDs, to help Beyond Blue work to protect everyone’s mental health and improve the lives of individuals, families and communities affected by anxiety, depression and suicide.

After driving through some of the most picturesque coastlines and historical towns NSW has to offer, 80 cars and over 200 participants crossed the finish line in Orange on 26 March 2018.

Thanks to everyone involved in the event, Beyond Bitumen raised over $400,000 and is currently Beyond Blue's largest community fundraiser.
