FUNDRACER: WHERE METRES MATTER

by / Monday, 27 August 2018 / Published in News item

Last Friday night at Cycle Collective in Richmond, a full house pedalled hard on stationary spin bikes for 50 minutes to raise funds for us by riding as far as possible in that time

To add an additional element – metres were awarded by the amounts fundraised by each team.

Raise $150 to receive 300 bonus metres

Raise $200 to receive 400 bonus metres

Raise $250 to receive 500 bonus metres

Oh, and each team was weighed, and the winners determined by the distance achieved per kilogram! Tricky eh?

In a frenetic display of competitive endurance, the 22 teams pedalled to the in-house DJ’s playlist. It was indeed a ‘doof doof’ inspired performance!

The Foundation entered 2 teams:

  • The Anchors – Board members Matt Dimattina and Shaun Mooney were joined by Foundation friend and long-time Share the Road Tour rider Daniel Liptak
  • AGF with Grace – AGF Patron Simon Gillett, Board Member Charlie Farren and AGF Cycling Scholar Grace Brown (in prep for her place in the Australian Cycling World Championship team)

Results are sketchy as to which AGF team covered the most distance, but its fair to say, it was a good result for both.

Adding the auction items to the fundraising this event raised more than $5,500, so thank you everyone who took part, especially those who donated prizes for the auction.

A special thanks go to Chris and Adam at Cycle Collective – another great night.
