In October 2018 our CEO Tony Johnson along with Paul Allsop and Stuart Forbes set out to ride over 1000 km’s during the month of October in the Great Cycle Challenge to raise money and awareness for the Children’s Medical Research Institute. (CMRI)
Their initial target and goal was $35,000, but with the kind hearts of many of our clients and contractors the revised final money donated was a remarkable $63,406.
On Friday 8th February 2019, Head of Fundraising Andrew Kelly from CMRI has invited Team Styleness to a private tour of the Institute in Westmead and experience the impacts of their outstanding fundraising efforts.
Congratulations to Tony and Team Styleness on an outstanding achievement.
Great Cycle Challenge started in 2013, and after just 5 years, the event has grown to become one of the biggest cycling events in Australia.
People of all ages, abilities and from every state across the country set themselves a personal riding goal and challenge themselves to pedal throughout October to fight kids’ cancer.
In 5 years, our community of 42,498 riders from all 6 states and 2 territories have ridden a total of 10,305,632 km, and together we’ve raised $12,280,194 in support of research to develop better treatments and find a cure for childhood cancer.
Why? Because cancer is the largest killer of children from disease in Australia. Over 600 Australian children are diagnosed with cancer every year and sadly, 3 children die every week.
We're riding to give these kids the brighter futures they deserve, and we believe that any one individual can make their personal impact to fight cancer and save little lives.
Our vision is a world without cancer where all kids are living life, not fighting for it.
