2019 WOMEN’S 300
11-13 October 2019
After raising $440,000 last year, the Women's 300 is back to experience the best the Sunshine Coast has to offer with a new and improved course.
For 3 days the all-female peloton will cycle 300+ kilometres on arguably the best cycling areas in Queensland on the Sunshine Coast - including iconic beaches, beautiful hinterland and a finish in Brisbane - all to raise much needed funds for Queensland children's charities.
For a number of weeks now 39 female business leaders have been pushing themselves on and off the bike, their passion for cycling and sense of corporate social responsibility plain to see. Their reward will be an incredible sense of achievement both personally and for the children and families supported through the AEIOU Foundation and Mater Foundation.
Our major charity partner, the AEIOU Foundation for children with autism, will direct funds raised from the event to a refurbishment and fit out of its Toowoomba centre, enabling more children in the region access to a safe, secure and modern facility for care and therapy.
Minor beneficiary, the Mater Foundation, will receive funds to go towards purchasing an in-hospital shuttle to safely and easily transport critically ill babies to theatre, thus significantly reducing the risk of serious clinical problems.
Raised so far
The 2019 Course will be a beautiful tour of South East Queensland. The peloton will head north to the Sunshine Coast, through challenging but picturesque terrian, continuing with a loop of the area beaches and hinterland, including famous Queensland hotspot Noosa, and then returning to Brisbane to cap off a fantastic 3 days and 300 kilometres of cycling.
