Best Western joins Megan’s Great MS Mowdown as preferred accommodation supplier

Best Western is proud to be the preferred accommodation supplier for mum of three, Megan Healey, as she kicks off her Melbourne to Sydney charity ride for Megan’s Great MS Mowdown today.

Officially launching her campaign from the Best Western Premier Hotel 115 Kew in Melbourne this morning, Megan will ride a lawnmower up Australia’s east coast to Sydney to raise funds for MS Australia from 13 – 29 May.

Best Western Australasia Chief Executive Officer, Rob Anderson said he is honoured to be able to provide accommodation to support Megan as she raises awareness for her Kiss Goodbye to MS campaign.

“Raising awareness of MS by supporting the incredible work people like Megan are doing in our community is crucial for rallying support for ongoing research and funding for treatment and a cure for MS,” Mr Anderson said.

“We will be following Megan over her 17-day ride and encourage others to support her worthy cause.”

Megan will stay at six Best Western properties during her charity ride:

10 – 13 May  Best Western Premier Hotel 115 Kew
