ACORPP in the community

The Ride to Cure Diabetes is an incredible event where people from all over Australia meet for the weekend or just the day, to commemorate their fundraising and cycling achievements.

Matt Buckley from our Brisbane office and Justin Boelen from our Perth office decided to take on the challenge, training vigorously in the lead up to event where they were to tackle the 160km ride through the Barossa Valley!

Needless to say with a bit of healthy competitive spirit between them, and a few minor injuries (including a bee sting) they both successfully conquered the ride - blood, sweat, tears and all. Well done guys!!

The ACORPP team raised a tremendous $10,140. The support messages on the fundraising pages make entertaining reading so feel free to have a look here http://ride.jdrf.org.au/teamParticipant.asp?participantID=168. Anyone would think it was a relaxing tour of the region’s wineries. A special thanks to all of our supporters. Donations are still welcome.

The funds raised at the Ride to Cure Diabetes will make a serious impact on JDRF’s research to cure, treat and prevent type 1 diabetes (T1D). JDRF is currently supporting up to 40 Australian T1D research projects, with dozens more that they would like to support.

Justin is also in preparation for The Hawaiian Ride for Youth which is one of Australia’s premier charity events!

Held on April 1- 5 2014, this ride will see cyclists travel from Albany to Perth covering over 700kms to raise money for Youth Focus. Whilst cycling through the towns of Walpole, Pemberton, Busselton, Bunbury, Frankland River, Bridgetown, Collie and Mandurah the riders will visit high schools to engage the students in the issues of youth suicide, depression and self-harm and the services that Youth Focus provide.

There’s a great video here about the cause.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?list=PL5565C2528903EFB8&v=PHhzuugzHWk#t=135
