Lead Out Team

We're Riding for a Reason in January

We're challenging ourselves during the 2019 Santos Tour Down Under this January with the Ride for a reason team to fundraise and help beat cancer.

Members of the Lead Out Team consist of driven and influential South Australians who can help drive our efforts to help deliver a cancer free future. The Lead Out Team, much like in cycling is about breaking away from the peloton and setting the pace for those around us and those that we lead.

The goal of the team is to raise as much money as possible for the fight to beat cancer.  The other key element of this campaign is promoting physical activity, Sunsmart behaviour and participation in the great sport of cycling. 

Members of the Lead Out Team are required to set a minimum fundraising target of $5,000. Every dollar raised through this campaign helps Cancer Council SA continue investing in ground-breaking research, essential support services and life-saving prevention education.

With one in two Australians diagnosed with cancer before the age of 85, the need to find better ways to detect and treat cancer is real. Donate to support our ride and let’s beat cancer together!

Thank you to our Sponsors
