Cancer is the largest killer of children from disease in Australia. Over 600 Australian children are diagnosed with cancer each year, and sadly, three die every week.
Your fundraising efforts through Great Cycle Challenge will support research, which is vital to develop treatments and find a cure for childhood cancer(s).
Research has already led to breakthroughs in treating cancer and improved survival rates for kids all across Australia.
But we won't stop until ALL kids are free from cancer!
Follow these steps to ensure your challenge will make an impact to change the lives of kids living with cancer.
Set Yourself a Fundraising Target
Make sure you set yourself a fundraising target. Your friends will be more likely to sponsor you if they know you have a personal target...and they'll help you achieve it.
The higher your fundraising target, the more support you'll receive from your friends, family and workmates.
And the first 2,500 riders to raise $500 will receive a FREE 2017 Great Cycle Challenge jersey!
