Wednesday 26 February 2014:

On 8th March 2014 the Tint a Car team will be embarking 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 $14,000 in only a few months, and with your support this year they plan to raise even more!

Currently sitting on $14,019 in donations, our goal is to reach $20,000….So we’re nearly there but we’d love your help for the final leg! 

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:

Find it in your hearts to make a donation today. It will be greatly appreciated, not just by the team at Tint a Car but more importantly by the many teens dealing with this horrible disease.
