Simon Hoole bike ride to raise $12,000+ for cancer research
Avalon local Simon Hoole is covering 1,287km on his bike, hoping to raise over $12,000 for cancer research, support and prevention projects across Australia. Participating in the 2019 Tour de Cure ride in 2019 from 3 - 11 May, Hoole plans to ride from Sydney to Geelong.
Tour de Cure’s mission is to cure cancer. Since 2007, they’ve raised $40 million and have funded more than 322 world-class cancer projects, achieving 24 significant cancer breakthroughs.
Cancer takes a terrible emotional, physical and financial toll on those it affects. Nobody should have to face cancer alone. On every tour, they visit regional communities and donate $10,000 to local cancer projects: they’ve seen first-hand how much harder it is to access care and support away from major towns or cities.
By 2020, Tour de Cure has set an ambitious target of reaching $60million in fundraising. However, they cannot achieve this goal without the dedicated support and commitment of the people who participate in their tours and events each year, including our annual Tour de Cure Snow Ball and Spring Lunch.
Tour de Cure is incredibly grateful to everyone who makes the enormous commitment to train and fundraise, or support their cause in any way. Fundraising takes a significant amount of time and often involves the support of friends, families, colleagues and local communities.
