Ride the Brisbane to Gold Coast Cycle Challenge and go the extra mile by raising vital funds for the Heart Foundation. There are thousands of Queenslanders who are not well enough to ride a bike but they would be incredibly grateful if you could become a ‘Heart Hero’ and ride for them and raise funds for important heart disease research.
Heart disease is the single biggest killer of Australians – taking a life every twelve minutes. Did you know there are 700,000 Queenslanders living with heart disease? That’s enough people to fill Suncorp Stadium thirteen times. These are the survivors. There are thousands more families living with the legacy of having lost a loved one prematurely to heart disease. So please help the Heart Foundation by stretching your fundraising muscle, as well as your calf muscles, in this year’s B2GC – your heart and others’ hearts will feel better for it!
Heart disease is the biggest killer of Australians with one person in Australia dying from it every twelve minutes. Many risk factors are preventable and being active every day is one way to beat the odds. Whether it’s riding a bike to work, going for a family weekend cycle or being part of this year’s Brisbane to Gold Coast Cycle Challenge, we can all make positive changes to be more active.
The Heart Foundation is strongly focused on increasing people’s opportunities to be more active by working with government and industry to make it easier for us to cycle, walk and travel by public transport every day.
As a passionate advocate of active living, Bicycle Queensland does a wonderful job to encourage more of us to live healthier and active lives.
We are grateful to be selected once again as beneficiary partner for this year’s event. This ongoing commitment allows us to continue important and highly effective cardiovascular research that may go unfunded otherwise.
Please note: there is no minimum fundraising amount required to participate in this event.
