This Festival is about bringing like minded people together on every type of motorcycle there is, as one, to have a great weekend in an iconic setting supporting Zaidee's Rainbow Foundation.

Zaidee's Rainbow Foundation is all about saving and improving lives via organ and tissue donation - something we should all talk about and have an "Inspired Discussion".  Zaidee Rose Alexander Turner – aged 7 years and 22 days died suddenly on 2nd December 2004 from a burst blood vessel in her brain called a Cerebral Aneurism. Zaidee’s parents, Kim and Allan, founded Zaidee’s Rainbow Foundation not long after.

At the time of Zaidee’s death the Turner family had been registered Organ and Tissue Donors for 5 years. As a result, Zaidee donated her organs and tissues at the Royal Children’s Hospital, as were her wishes at the time.

Zaidee’s donated gifts help save or improve the lives of 7 people.

Zaidee was the only child in Victoria under the age of 16 years and we have been told one of the youngest Australians to donate her organs and tissues in 2004. She was only 1 of 6 children nationally to donate their organs in 2004.

100% funds raised goes back the Zaidee's Rainbow Foundation to allow us to drive our national awareness and education programs, projects and events to help increase the organ and tissue donation rate nationally.
