Final Tally for 2015 Ride for CanTEEN
Tint a Car Team Ride 360km for Charity
Friday 20th March 2015:
On 8th March 2015 the Tint a Car team embarked on a 360km bike journey over 3 days, from Perth to Busselton, for a wonderful cause - to raise money for ‘Life Cycle For CanTeen', a charity organisation to help teens cope with effects of Cancer. Last year the team raised $20,000 in only a few months, and this year they have raised over $23,000!
During the event, Tint a Car ran a competition to win a bike valued at $479 generously donated by the team at Riders Choice! The Winner of the bike is Helen Dunnage from NSW. Congratulations! We encourage you to check our their range & gear at www.riderschoice.com.au
What is 'Life Cycle For CanTEEN?
Life Cycle For CanTeen is a support organisation for 12 - 24 year olds living with cancer. A cancer diagnosis is traumatic at the best of times, but perhaps even more so for a young person. At this stage of their lives they will already be experiencing issues relating to their identity, independence, relationships and career; and whilst not all cancer is a death sentence, it can mean the start of a long process of painful treatment and years of uncertainty.
The Tint a Car team participated in Life Cycle For CanTeen a few years ago and the riders commented on how “It was an unforgettable experience, especially heartening to see teens with cancer also out on their bikes and taking part in some of the ride. A huge effort given what they have been through or are currently going through, it’s just out of this world! It was also warming to see them happy at quite possibly the hardest point in their lives.
On a final note from Ian Lee, Tint a Car WA State Franchise Manager:
'A BIG THANKYOU for all the support and donations. it is very much appreciated and trust me when I say I look forward to doing it next year and making it bigger & better!!' - Ian Lee
