Today along with Simon Coffin and Tim Chadd from Total Rush I visited Solve Disability Solutions to present a $4,000 cheque for the Freedom Wheels program. The funds where raised at the Total Rush Renovation Gala Event in late 2013.
Pictured below with us is Fiona Still (Solve CEO) and Rosemary Nolan (Fundraising Coordinator).
A huge thank you to Total Rush for their ongoing support of Freedom Wheels program, helping all kids no matter their ability on bikes!
***CONGRATULATIONS to James Galbraith of Middle Park Victoria on winning the S-Works Olympic edition SL4. Thank you to everyone that purchased a tcicket and supported TADVIC’s Freedom Wheels program.***
Everyone should experience riding a bike – it’s a rite of passage for every child. That’s what I believe and so do my friends at Total Rush and Cycling Tips. So we are holding another bike raffle to raise funds to TADVIC’s Freedom Wheels program so we can get more kids with disabilities on bikes.
The Olympic 2013 Specialized S-Works Framesets are limited to just 260 Worldwide and thanks to Total Rush we have secured no.164. The Olympic S-Works were designed specifically for Specialized team riders such as Tom Boonen, Silver Medalist Tony Martin and of course Gold Medal Winner Alexander Vinokourov. They are highly limited and will not only be a stunning frame to ride but also a piece of Specialized and Olympic history.
To complete this amazing frame Total Rush have gone all the way – completed with Campagnolo Super Record groupset, ceramic speed bearings, S-Works Toupe saddle, S-Works bar,stem/post and arguably the best wheels on the market, Lightweight Gen3 carbon clinchers. (frame size 56cm)
Riding the 7 peaks of Victoria over the years has become a goal of many Australian cyclists. This year’s Victorian Chain Reaction Challenge will ride the 7 peaks in just 7 days. Beginning in the beautiful town of Bright, riders will tackle the climbs of Mt Buffalo, Mt Hotham, Falls Creek, Dinner Plain, Mt Buller, Lake Mountain and Donna Buang.
Climbing a mountain on a bike certainly gives you time to think. Riders will have more time than usual to think about the children we are raising money for.
In 2013, Chain Reaction will provide funding to purchase and fit-out a brand new Newborn Emergency Transport Service Ambulance (NETS).
NETS provides emergency medical retrieval of critically-ill newborn or premature babies 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. NETS also provide expert clinical advice, clinical co-ordination, emergency treatment and stabilisation and inter hospital transport for very sick babies and children up to the age of 16 years.
As Victoria has only four hospitals that possess their own neo-natal intensive care units, NETS Ambulances provide the necessary transport to ensure critically ill babies are transported safely. NETS transports over 1,000 critically-ill newborns in Victoria each year.
This is the second year I am riding with Aaron Lee and his team Caramel Creative – A Caramel video crew followed the 2012 Chain Reaction Melbourne ride on the arduous Road to Buller earlier this year. The team were able to capture some outstanding Victorian scenery and importantly, give the viewer a taste of what’s involved in undertaking Chain Reaction, as well as why Caramel’s such a passionate supporter.
