Ride for Simone
Ride for Simone is an endurance ride that tests and challenges participants. However, it is also so much more than just a cycling event. It’s a ride to remember Simone Cozzella, a young woman who fought her own cancer battle. The ride promotes her legacy of making a positive impact on society, and helps others going through the cancer experience.
Simone wanted to be a positive influence on others and wanted her life to impact people. For this reason she chose to support Camp Quality, and it’s why Ride for Simone continues to support our work with children impacted by cancer, and their families. By creating the best quality of life for these kids, the Ride hopes to raise awareness and funds for our cause. They've set a huge goal of $20,000! This donation would be enough to give 18 families the opportunity to reconnect and make new memories on one of our Family Camps, away from the day-to-day stresses of the cancer experience.
Departing from Sydney, and riding through Shoalhaven Heads, Batemans Bay, Tathra, Mallacoota, Orbost, Sale, Warragul, and finishing in Carlton, this awesome ride takes in some truly amazing Australian scenery. With an average daily pedal of 147km, this is a ride with a purpose!
Whilst registrations to be a rider have now closed, you can still sponsor a rider to help the team reach their fundraising goal (thereby donating to Camp Quality), or you can check out the route to see when the riders will be in your neighbourhood. Feel free to cheer them from the sidelines! We encourage everyone to make the journey to the final moments of the ride, when the cyclists will pedal to Brunettis Carlton and be greeted by our Camp Quality cheersquad. We hope you can get behind these riders and sponsor them, as well as see you there welcoming them back to Melbourne.
Our heartfelt thanks goes out to Richard and Anthony Cozzella, who have worked tirelessly to organise the ride and worked with Camp Quality to make the Ride a reality. It's a truly amazing fundraising effort! Their work will make a huge difference to the lives of kids and families we support.
