Fitz’s Challenge is Canberra’s biggest and best long distance cycling event for a reason.
The event is run by Pedal Power ACT, and there are a number of people and organisations who significantly contribute to the success of Fitz’s Challenge.
2017 Fitz’s Challenge partners and supporters are:
Official event charity
The Kids’ Cancer Project
Official charity partner
Since 2009, The Kids’ Cancer Project has been Fitz’s Challenge official charity partner. Cyclists participating in this event have raised more than $333,000 to date for childhood cancer research.
Kids with cancer face enormous challenges. The biggest is that they get different types of cancer to adults. Research is the key to discovering more targeted and effective ways to help them.
Since 1993, thanks to supporters just like Fitz’s Challenge riders, the charity has contributed tens of millions of dollars to scientific research projects to help children with many types of cancer. Learn about the research projects here.
Kids with cancer need science! Please join us by fundraising while you train for this challenge.
