The Captain’s Ride
As part of our ongoing commitment to give back to our Community, the Prime Financial Group is very proud to be the Platinum Sponsor of The Captain’s Ride in 2017.
The Captain’s Ride is the highlight of the Steve Waugh Foundation’s annual campaign to raise significant funds and champion the stories of and provide life changing support to children and young adults affected by a rare disease.
The rare disease patient is the orphan of the healthcare system, often without diagnosis, without treatment, without research and therefore, without reason to hope. This needs to change and the Prime Financial Group is 110% behind the Steve Waugh Foundation in assisting them to make a difference to the lives of these children and their families.
The Ride, this year held in Tasmania from the 4th to the 11th of November, is designed as a challenge on and off the bike with Rider Team Members making a significant commitment in terms of time, training and fundraising.
Over the coming months, we will be sharing more stories on the Foundation, the people it supports and the Riders who have made the commitment towards
‘PUTTING RARE DISEASES ON THE MAP’.
