Ride 4 HeartKids
Take the challenge and get on your bike!
There are two ways you can show your support through Ride 4 HeartKids:
Congenital/childhood heart disease is the biggest killer of infants in Australia, every week 8 children are born with this condition and Every day sadly 4 lives are lost.
Now we are giving you the chance to do something about this and help fundraise for HeartKids.
Ride for HeartKids is a cycling charity event which raises vital funds for HeartKids, the only Australian charity that is dedicated to supporting children, teens and adults affected by congenital/childhood heart disease.
In 2016/2017 we raised an incredible $40,000.
This year is going to be bigger and better than ever before and you can get involved by showing your support and making a donation to a team page here.
Whilst a team of riders take part in events across NSW, VIC and the ACT at the end of 2017, throughout the month of February 2018 you too can get on your bike and join the fundraising challenge!
You can register to complete one of the following event distances:
- Children’s event: 20 km.
- Beginners: 100 km.
- Intermediate: 500 km.
- Team and Advanced: 1000 km.
Complete your kilometres on a road bike, a mountain bike, a BMX ... or even a stationary trainer – just be sure to record all of them on Strava to count towards the total!
Any amount that you donate to our team or fundraise yourself will make a big difference to the support that HeartKids can provide families.
- $10.00 could provide a meal for a family in hospital
- $50.00 could provide a care bag for a family in hospital
- $100.00 could help provide a regional family with a hospital overnight stay
