I hope this email finds you well. I have recently come across your organisation's strong commitment to the wonderful world of cycling and I wanted to write to tell you about a fantastic opportunity that will benefit you, your riders and the 8 children every hour that suffer a serious injury each and every year.
Our charity, the Day of Difference Foundation has decided to launch the 400k Challenge for Kids cycle event, supporting our work with children suffering life threatening injuries. This challenge, conducted over 3 days, covers approximately 400km, riding through the magnificent countryside from Sydney to the famous Hunter Valley wine region and return. The training, fitness, camaraderie and new friendships that develop within this ride are extraordinary and multifaceted. The individual wins by keeping fit, building friendships and making a difference to so many children fighting for their life in our hospital system today. It also gives corporate teams the opportunity to show their own staff and the rest of the world that they care by showing their support for this worthwhile cause.
Please take a look at the flyer below with a link that will take you to the 400k Challenge for Kids website. It will lead you through the ride, the roads, the fantastic accommodation, food and services that we will provide over a 3 day weekend.
We would love to have your riders involved in this event and hope that you will forward this email to those who might be interested. It is a great opportunity to experience a spectacular ride whilst doing something that really matters for children suffering life threatening injuries.
You never know when it can happen in your own life. It did with me.
Best regards and thanks,
Executive Chairman & Founder
Day of Difference Foundation
