Hopestreet runs multiple centers across Sydney.
The scourge of domestic violence often leaves numerous children without a secure place to live, play after school, or even access a healthy breakfast to start their day at school.
The funds collected from this year's challenge will be dedicated to sustaining the school breakfast club and offering essential family support services. These services play a crucial role in ensuring the safety and well-being of these vulnerable children and pave the way for a better and brighter future for them.
So They Can is a Non-Profit with a mission to eradicate poverty in Kenya and Tanzania.
Intergenerational poverty in the region is primarily attributed to a lack of educational opportunities, the unfortunate practice of selling young girls as child brides, and the prevalence of abusive practices like genital cutting.
Funds raised from this year's event will support the community education programs, rescues and education of young girls to empower communities to break the poverty and abuse cycle and become self-sufficient.


Who is this event for?

  • Corporate executives and business leaders with a purpose to give back.
  • Whether you are a novice or experienced cyclist, our event is designed for you if you are willing to take on the Challenge. We cater for all fitness levels.

Check out our video featuring our remarkable female ambassador, Grace Brown, and some of our riders who’ve broken personal barriers and reignited their passion for cycling through the Chain Reaction Challenge.

Critical to the Chain Reaction experience is the training program. This is where a wonderful team culture is created before the Challenge and allows you to develop networks and connections with other like-minded professionals. The training program is designed to ensure you have all the skill, confidence and fitness you need to complete the 7 day challenge.

The features of our training program include:

  • Run by AusCycling accredited coaches 
  • Structured group on bike training program
  • 4 week base building training program to complete on your own prior to the start of your group training program
  • Targeted coaching to ensure each rider is capable of finishing and enjoying the event
  • Ongoing access to Chain Reaction training rides during the year

In 2024, Chain Reaction has developed a new training kit, which will be provided to every rider as an integral component of their training program.


Our purpose is to raise funds through our Challenges. We do this from a combination of a personal upfront donation, individual fundraising and corporate team sponsorship.

Individual Fundraising

By participating in the Sydney Chain Reaction Challenge each rider commits to both:

1. An upfront donation of $3,000 (When you register before October 2nd. $3,500 after this date)

Paid by each individual rider as their commitment to fundraise for the charity. This covers accommodation for the night before the challenge begins.

2. Individual fundraising minimum of $6,000
These are funds raised by the rider via personal networks, friends, family and business connections.

To help you achieve your fundraising target we provide you:

  • A personal fundraising page
  • Fundraising resources - toolkits, email and social banners
  • Online education sessions and mentoring support

3. Corporate Team Sponsorship 

The success of our events is due to our team based format that brings individuals together to train, support one another and work to secure corporate sponsorship for their team. A minimum of 6 riders is required for each team, and they should aim for a minimum team sponsorship of $75,000.

Your team will have a uniquely designed event uniform and all corporate sponsors will receive company branding on this based on their sponsorship support.

If you do not have a team to enter, don't worry as we will place you in one. Alternatively, you may wish to start your own team. Either way feel free to contact Adam Parrott on 0411 501 882 and he will guide you through the process of securing corporate sponsorship.
