Coast 2 Coast ride and fundraising events POSTPONED!
Unfortunately due to the current COVID situation in NSW Team Jefferson has had to postpone its record-breaking attempt to cycle from Perth to the steps of the Sydney Opera House, and all associated fundraising events. Our thoughts are with the people impacted by COVID and the lockdowns.
The good news is our partnership is continuing so you can expect to see some local events planned over the coming months, including an even bigger and better World Mental Health Day – On Your Bike community ride!
For individuals and organisations that have partnered, donated and supported us, we’ll be in contact over the next couple of days to work out the next steps. There’s still plenty of work going on in the background so check our website for regular updates.
We need your support
We have joined forces with Team Jefferson to improve the mental wellbeing of the Townsville community, as they attempt to break a record by riding Coast 2 Coast from Perth to Sydney.
Through this record breaking attempt we aim to raise money so we can continue operating our Bike Sheds and raise awareness so that people struggling with their mental health seek the support they need.
How you can help
You can show your support and make the kilometres count by purchasing part of the 3950 cycling route!
For just $10 a kilometre you can help to improve the mental wellbeing of regional Queensland...and support Team Jefferson to break a record in the process.
In return we work with you to tailor the benefits to your business. These could include social media posts, logo placement, blogs, videos, interview mentions to name a few!
We would like to thank these businesses for their support...
The partnership draws on selectability’s commitment to improving the mental wellbeing of regional Queenslanders through its Bike Shed and Team Jefferson’s goal of riding from Cottesloe Beach, Western Australia to the steps of the Sydney Opera House, New South Wales to raise awareness for mental health while beating the current record.
selectability's values and purpose closely align with Team Jefferson and partnering to support the Coast to Coast ride and promote the Bike Shed was an easy decision for everyone involved!
We hope that through this initiative we can encourage people to seek the support they need and raise funds to continue our important work through the Bike Shed.
“Working with selectability and its Bike Shed initiative
is an obvious fit...we get to combine our passion for cycling with a
cause that is very close to our hearts.”
~ Allan Jefferson
