Great Cycle Challenge Success!

"Great Cycle Challenge Australia - $4246.99 of $4000 goal - 635km of 600km goal"

In October, three Sustineo-ites mounted their noble steeds (aka bicycles) to pedal hard and raise funds to fight kids’ cancer in the Great Cycle Challenge. We’re pleased to announce they smashed their goals, raising a total of $4,245.99 and riding 635km between them. Congratulations to Tom, Nina, and Ellis for their mighty efforts!

Thank you to all who donated to this worthy cause. The Great Cycle Challenge 2021 has raised $6.95million (so far…), with 12,518 people riding a whopping 3.3million km! The funds go to the Children’s Research Medical Institute, an independent organisation researching treatments and cures for serious genetic diseases and cancers affecting kids so that they can be out living life, not fighting for it.

Special mention goes to our CEO, Tom Sloan, who committed to riding 400km before an injury put him out for the first two weeks of October. He had a tight schedule to reach his lofty goal! But on the afternoon of the 30th, with much encouragement and accompanied by friends, he crossed the virtual line, logging 432km in October. Kudos, Tom!

We’re super proud of our Sustineo-ites for getting on their bikes for leisure and active travel to help keep fit and leave a lighter footprint on the planet. And now that the office is open again, it’s great to see most of the team choosing bikes and buses over a car!

Donations towards the Challenge are being accepted until 26 November, so if you’re inspired by our team’s efforts, head to our page to donate: https://greatcyclechallenge.com.au/Teams/TheSustineo-itesandourNobleSteeds
