2019/20 Funding Distribution
Chain Reaction Challenge Foundation is pleased to announce that thanks to our generous riders, donors and sponsors, we have raised over $2 Million in 2019/2020.
This year has seen several challenges - from bushfires during the summer months to the current COVID-19 pandemic which has meant the postponement of 2 major events. However, strong fundraising from the Women’s 300 in October 2019 and early in 2020 as well as continued commitment from our sponsors has enabled Chain Reaction to provide donations to all of our major charity partners with a distribution of $1,277,326.
This funding will make a considerable, positive impact on the lives of children through our charity partners’ programs, especially in these uncertain times.
Such a result would certainly not have been possible without the incredible commitment of our riders and the generosity of their donors and sponsors. We are so grateful for their support.
See below for a detailed view of funds allocation and projects supported.
Chain Reaction sincerely thanks its riders, corporate partners, supporters, individual donors and volunteers who were involved to help ensure we could continue to support kids in need through our charity partners' programs.
We are working hard planning our events for 2021 and look forward to returning to a full event calendar next year. More information about these events will be released in mid-September.
We look forward to seeing everyone back out on the bike again soon.
