This year I have signed up for the inaugural Tour De Cure Victorian Discovery ride which will be taking place over 3 days from February 26 to 28, 2021.
Tour de Cure is an incredible Australian charity that has raised over $60 million for cancer related projects since 2007 and has helped to fund 502 cancer projects and 40 significant cancer breakthroughs in that time. In addition, TDC has helped to raise awareness about cancer prevention to more than 150,000 school children across Australia.
The ride will start in Daylesford, then head through Ballarat and Ocean Grove with the final leg being Ocean Grove to Sorrento (courtesy of the ferry) then finishing in Melbourne. The ride will be an amazing experience encompassing some 390 kilometres in 3 days, plenty of hills and potentially the extreme heat of Summer. I’ve been in training for many months now and really looking forward to pushing myself to the limit.
Myself and 6 friends are joining a group of some 100 riders and support team volunteers, all with a common cause to raise vital money for cancer research and awareness.
The Tour de Cure Victorian Discovery ride will be partnering with the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Research Institute in Victoria as part of the VIC Discovery Tour over the next 3 years. The funding from this tour will help to bring 4 world-class research projects to life in bowel, stomach, colorectal and ovarian cancer.
Raising money for cancer research
As we know, cancer research funding has been severely impacted in recent times and needs all the help it can get.
