Last month, in their second year, Launch brokers formed part of the 14 riders in ‘Team Finance Brokers’ who challenged themselves to make a difference, riding 215km from Optus Stadium in Perth to Mandurah and back the next day. ‘MACA Cancer 200 Ride for Research’ is a heart-warming and exciting charity event that is run to the highest standards – an absolute joy to be a part of.
There were many highlights and emotional moments from the official opening day through to the finish line. The start was an incredible experience, over 1000 riders being sent off on their journey to the tune of the bag pipes played by the Scotch College Pipe Band.
It was very hot conditions on the 2nd day, the team faced very strong headwinds particularly from Mandurah to Fremantle however spirits remained high and they persevered through to a proud finish.
Our sincere thoughts are with those who are currently battling to fight this devastating disease and many thousands of loved ones who have been affected.
THANK YOU from ‘Team Finance Brokers’ to our team, sponsors, businesses, friends and family for their amazing support helping us raise $60,407 for the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research. This cause is close to our hearts and we are so grateful for your contribution.
A big thank you to ALI Insurance (Leah Hutchings & Alexis Halsted), our support crew and valued sponsors. We’d also like to thank the Harry Perkins Institute and MACA 200 team of officials and volunteers for producing such an amazing, well-coordinated charity event.
The event itself raised over $4.8 million dollars for cancer research right here in WA.
