YAKIMA'S RIDE WITH TOUR DE CURE

27th August 2014

 

We’re thrilled to announce our support towards charitable organisation Tour De Cure as an essential partner, donating $5,000 worth of cycling gear to help the team ride across Australia to raise necessary funds for cancer research.

Tour De Cure has raised over $10 million and funded 137 projects since 2007. Each year the team plans challenging routes to reach ambitious fundraising targets, and last year alone they were able to fund 38 research, support and prevention projects.

This year Tour De Cure has set another ambitious goal of raising $3 million to support those living with cancer and their families, and spread the message of prevention through being fit, happy and healthy – a philosophy that Yakima stands by.

Tour De Cure holds annual cycles across the country, with more than six rides in the month of August alone and travelling over 500 kilometres on average.

Given the great distance they travel, it is crucial for the charity to have the best possible equipment. Yakima will ensure their team of inspiring riders will be able to get to each fundraising cycle across Australia with Whispbar Through Bars and Yakima Frontloaders.
