Cy­clists make a dif­fer­ence

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

A GROUP of 19 cy­clists set off from Como on Novem­ber 17 for a seven-day fundrais­ing ride.

The 2016 Fu­ture2 Wheel Clas­sic be­gan at the Es­ther Cafe, which is an ini­tia­tive of the Es­ther Foun­da­tion.

The Es­ther Foun­da­tion pro­vides re­cov­ery ser­vices for young women to over­come life-con­trol­ling strug­gles and is­sues.

The not-for-profit or­gan­i­sa­tion was awarded a multi-year grant by Fu­ture2 in 2015 for its Pos­i­tive Path­ways pro­gram.

The 930km fundrais­ing ride took a coastal route to Mar­garet River, re­turn­ing to Perth via Bridgetown and Man­durah in time for the open­ing of the FPA Pro­fes­sion­als Congress on De­cem­ber 23.

Olympian Anna Meares greeted the Wheel Clas­sic rid­ers on stage at the Fi­nan­cial Plan­ning As­so­ci­a­tion of Aus­tralia (FPA) Congress, pre­sent­ing tro­phies to the top fundrais­ers, and the cy­clist who showed the most grit and de­ter­mi­na­tion dur­ing the ride.
