It’s second year in a row, but efforts to raise funds for cancer are on the rise. Australia’s biggest cycling fundraiser will be organized this weekend in which more than 1,500 cyclists will take part. They will be travelling from the University of Queensland campus, St Lucia campus to Wivenhoe.
In order to make sure that all the cyclists taking part in the cycling event are safe, 294 crew members will also be going with them. It will be a 200 km race, which will done to and froth. The amount, which is collected is divided into parts and is being used for varied types of cancer treatments. One part of the fund is also given to the Queensland Institute of Medical Research.
In 2011, the event was able to raise more than $4.7 million and this year, it is expected that more than $5.2 million will be raised. The best part of the event is that all the participants, who took part in the event, are cancer survivors.
This special feature makes it all the more interesting and even leads to the gathering of a large number of supporters. “Every rider here today has their own story and motivation for participating, but there is an untold sense of camaraderie from the start, along the route”, said a participant.
