Claude ‘Mowerman’ Harvey will soon embark on another epic trip to raise funds and awareness for Bravehearts, this time mowing his way across regional Queensland.
Commencing on Monday, June 17 in Toowoomba and finishing over 1,400kms and 38 days later on Wednesday, July 24 in Mackay, Claude is hoping the trip will get him closer to his goal of raising $2 million for Bravehearts by 2022.
Fresh from his South Australian 27-day tour, Claude has previously travelled thousands of kilometres throughout New South Wales, Victoria, Tasmania and Western Australia and has raised a staggering $1.2 million to help protect Australian kids.
On the month-long trip, Claude will pound the pavement, visiting 21 regional towns such as Gatton, Toogoolawah, Nanango, Mundubera, Blackwater, Capella, Dysart, Nebo, Mackay, and more spreading his message of the importance of child protection in Queensland communities.
While most Australians his age have their feet up, enjoying their well-deserved twilight years, Claude says he is happy to be able to contribute to the community through awareness and fundraising.
“Although fundraising is a big part of my tours, raising awareness of this horrendous crime is my primary mission,” says Claude.
“If I can save just one child from this crime that harms 1 in 5 Australian children, I will have achieved what I’ve set out to do.”
Renowned throughout Australia and with a following of admiring fans, Claude is sure to draw a crowd in each of the towns he visits as locals pour out onto the streets to see the man himself, and his trusty mower.
While in each town on his tour, Claude will visit with community leaders, visit shopping centres and talk with locals that cross his path while inspiring donations from those with a few dollars to spare.
