The Property Industry Foundation’s (PIF) Annual Cycling Challenge is back for its fifth year with over 60 individual registrations already received.
The “Tour de PIF” is to be held on Sunday14 September and aims to raise over $200,000 net for disadvantaged youths.
The major sponsor for the event is The GPT Group with supporting sponsors including KPMG, Holding Redlich, Taylor and HDR Rice Daubney.
Registrations are now open and filling fast with 300 cyclists expected to ride on the day.
“We are thrilled to bring back the ‘Tour de PIF’ for another year. 2013 was a great success with over $200,000 net raised for at risk and homeless young people and we are looking forward to another successful year and the opportunity for the property industry to come together,” said Rosemary Smithson, National Chief Executive Officer of PIF.
Teams and individuals are encouraged to fundraise with all proceeds going towards the Foundation’s “PIF House Program” which is developed to take young homeless people off the streets and get them back into society.
The cycling challenge will have two courses to choose from, a 62km ride or a 116km ride both starting from Bobbin Head. The two courses ensure that riders of all levels can participate.
Cyclists receive an official PIF Tour de PIF jersey, refreshments and a gourmet BBQ lunch at the conclusion of the event which will give riders the chance to socialise and network after the challenge.
The coveted yellow jersey will be awarded to the King of the Mountain Top who raises the most overall funds whilst the polka dot jersey is up for grabs for team who raises the most funds. A green jersey will be given to the rider with the most amount of donations received and a white jersey will be given to the rider under 30 years old who raised the most amount of dollars.
Last year the challenge raised over $200,000 net towards the Foundation’s charity building project which has provided accommodation for young people ready to re-enter the workforce.
