Supporting Research into Finding a Cure for Childhood Cancer
All funds raised are donated to the Children’s Cancer Institute, the only independent medical research institute in Australia dedicated to research into the causes, better treatments, cure and prevention of childhood cancer.
Children’s Cancer Institute rely on the generosity of the community to support their research. The Townsville to Cairns Bike Ride has supported this research since 1999 and raised over $5.5 million, with over $500,000 raised in 2016. We hope you will join us to raise the much needed funds to help eradicate this devastating disease.
Together we can save the lives of children with cancer and stop their suffering.
Help us to help the kids through:
- Event Sponsorship
- Rider and Supporter Fundraising
Funds can either be raised as sponsorship or tax deductible donations/pledges.
Money raised by way of sponsorship attracts GST. Despite common usage of the term “sponsorship” most funds raised by individual riders are technically tax deductible donations/pledges. Sponsorship occurs only when a benefactor purchases a sponsorship package outlined in this document – Townsville to Cairns Bike Ride Sponsorship Packages 2017.
Where a sponsorship package is purchased a tax invoice will be issued by Children’s Cancer Institute. Although riders may broker the purchase of a sponsorship package, generally most funds raised by riders constitute a tax deductible donation/pledge and will be receipted from the rider’s receipt book.
Where a benefactor makes a direct deposit to the Children’s Cancer Institute account as a tax deductible donation/pledge, a receipt will be generated by Children’s Cancer Institute if requested.
