For further event information visit rescuehelicopter.com.au/events In January 2012 Michael Cleary suffered life-threatening injuries after a collision on his Harley Davidson on the road between Moree and Narrabri. He has been dubbed a ‘miracle man’ by medical professionals, but Michael attributes his survival and recovery to the professionalism and speed of the Rescue Helicopter crews, the incredible work of the staff at the John Hunter Hospital and the love and support of his family. With the help of his wife, Kristy, and the Martins Group of Companies, Michael held a charity golf day at Dubbo Golf Club in September 2014. Michael also rallied 46 Dubbo locals to participate in National Blood Donor week in August. ‘Without the assistance of the state’s emergency and health services and the blood service I would have died. Donated blood was also vitally important to my recovery for more than a year after the accident,’ Michael said.
