This Sunday in Hobart, The Captain’s Ride finally begins!
Joining Steve Waugh at the start line will be 70 riders including Australia’s Tour De France winner Cadel Evans, nine-time Formula One winner Mark Webber, three-time Olympic Gold Medalist Shane Gould and six-time Gold Medalist Paralympian Michael Milton. Every one of the riders has spent the past months fundraising, training and preparing for the challenge only an 800km ride crisscrossing Tasmania could present.
Prime Financial Group is very proud to be the Platinum sponsor of the event, and prouder still of the efforts made by recipients of The Steve Waugh Foundation who face their own challenges every day of their young lives.
Over the next week we’ll be updating the blog with daily posts and footage as it comes from Channel 7’s Sunrise coverage – and for our Tasmanian clients, keep an eye on the papers and news broadcasts for the Riders as well as the peloton and support vehicles as it makes it’s way around the state.
Spread the word!
We need your continued passion and commitment to help The Steve Waugh Foundation reach their goals – use your Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to tell all you know about The Captain’s Ride and they can like our Facebook page for the latest updates, Tour highlights and news.
The Captain’s Ride is the premier fundraising event for The Steve Waugh Foundation, and funds raised provide life changing support and champions the stories of children and young adults (0-25 years) with a rare disease that would otherwise have nowhere to turn.
