Huawei Australia staff to ride 1656 km in Tour de Cure fundraiser

Huawei Australia is cheering on the cyclists riding in the sixth annual Tour de Cure and has donated $50,000 in sponsorship for the event. The Tour de Cure is seeking to raise $2 million to put towards 12 targeted cancer research, support and prevention projects.

Huawei’s Corporate Relations and Programs Manager, Lisa Connors, has committed to complete the 11-day, 1656 km ride from Brisbane to Mission Beach in Queensland and will ride alongside Sunrise Sports Presenter Mark Beretta and 90 other cyclists from corporate partners including Optus, Commonwealth Bank, Lexus, Harvey Norman and more.

“I may not be a very experienced cyclist, but everyone involved in the Tour was so supportive of me joining in, I just couldn’t resist their enthusiasm and positive spirits so I signed up for the 2012 ride,” said Connors. “The training has been hard and I know that the event itself will be an incredible challenge, but when I see the amazing difference the Tour de Cure makes in the community, I know that all the hard work is going towards a fantastic cause.”

Beginning their ride in Brisbane, the team will stop in Noosa, Rainbow Beach, Hervey Bay, Seventeen Seventy, Biloela, Yepoon, Airlie Beach, Ayr, Magnetic Island, Ingham and Mission Beach. For the first time, 45 guest riders will join the team of 90 across two stages of the Signature Tour (Noosa to Rainbow Beach and Rainbow Beach to Hervey Bay).

Donations (for teams, individuals or general donations) can be made through the Tour de Cure website.
